The 2011 IAFSM Annual Conference will be held March 8-10, 2011 at the Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Bloomington-Normal.
A special conference rate of $119 plus tax, single or double, per night, has been established at the Marriott. Reserve your room by calling Marriott reservations at (888) 236-2427 and tell them you are with the Illinois Association for Floodplain & Stormwater Management. The hotel’s reservation deadline for this rate is February 15th.
The Marriott is full on the 9th. Additional hotel accommodations and rates can be found by clicking on the following link:
Heartland Parking Garage: Heartland Parking Garage rates are as follows; $1.00 per hour up to $6.00 for all day or $8.00 for 24 hours. Guest staying overnight at the Marriott will receive complimentary parking in the Garage.
Movie Night - Wednesday, March 9th
The Normal Theater is connected to the Marriott so we have rented it out and are planning on showing a movie (we don’t have the exact title picked out yet) after the social hour. The movie will start at 8 pm so those interested will have time to grab a bite to eat and then head back to enjoy the show. The snack bar will be open selling popcorn and soda for $1 each; candies for $2.
Registration covers lunches, breaks, materials and your 2011-2012 IAFSM membership. Discount before February 15, 2011 ($170). If you register after February 15th the cost for the conference is $185. The deadline for registrations and cancellations is March 1, 2011. No refunds after March 1, 2011. In past years we had to turn away late registrants. Register early to make sure you don’t miss out.
Use the registration form enclosed in the 2011 Conference brochure (one per person, please). Make checks payable to “IAFSM.” Or you can pay by credit card. No vouchers, invoices, etc., will be accepted.

We invite all firms and agencies to become a Conference sponsor for 2011! Last year IAFSM expanded our recognition of sponsors and we plan to do even more this year. Again at this year’s conference we will display tent cards on the plenary session/luncheon tables listing the sponsors, and show sponsors on the large screens during & after plenary sessions and during the luncheons. This year we will also include a list of sponsors in the conference brochure, provided that sponsorship commitments are made by January 7, 2011. Door prize donors will also be recognized during the plenary and luncheon sessions.
Our conference sponsors and door prize donors have always been very important to the success of the IAFSM annual conferences, and we will work to ensure that there is value provided with your sponsorship dollars. Thank you to our past sponsors and donors; we look forward to hearing from you soon. And welcome to our new sponsors and donors; we look forward to having you join us.
The Conference Sponsor Form that includes registration information for sponsors and door prize donors can be downloaded from the Conference Forms Section below. If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Harbaugh at (630) 443-8145.
