The genesis of WU came from FEMA Region 9’s Kathy Schaefer, who recognized that many communities could not afford the investment of time and money to send floodplain managers and other professionals to the annual Floodplain Management Association (FMA) Conference. These smaller, often rural communities were the ones with the greatest need for the information. So, in 2012, the first WU event brought subject matter experts from local, state, and Federal agencies to Redding, Calif. and provided education and networking opportunities for northern California floodplain, water, and emergency managers.
