CRS Users Groups are communities that meet regularly to provide a forum about the National Flood Insurance Program’s voluntary program, the Community Rating System, and other floodplain management issues. Meetings often include informational presentations and group discussions to transfer knowledge and troubleshoot difficult floodplain management issues. Non-participating communities often attend these meetings to ask questions and learn from the discussions and presentations as they contemplate joining the program. Established in 2010, the Coastal Virginia CRS Workgroup includes locality representatives from a wide range of coastal communities in the Commonwealth. They also welcome participation from the private and academic sectors interested in learning about the NFIP, CRS, and floodplain management.
The Coastal Virginia CRS Workgroup meets every other month at 700 Town Center Drive, Newport News, Virginia. Meetings are typically held in the James Room and occasionally in the Warwick Room, both of which are located on the first floor of the building. Meetings run from 10AM-Noon. All are welcome! Registration or prior notice is not required.
