The Association of Floodplain Managers Association—Minnesota Chapter (MnAFPM) presented SEH Water Resources Engineer Brad Woznak with the Floodplain Manager of the Year Award at their Annual Conference in November 2017.
As a certified floodplain manager for many years, Brad works tirelessly to lead floodplain management efforts.
Here’s what Brad, who works out of the SEH St. Paul, Minnesota office, had to say about receiving the award and his profession:
I’m both pleased and humbled to receive this award. I have so much appreciation for my peers, my involvement in floodplain management and MnAFPM.
My involvement with MnAFPM began in 2003 when I became involved on the inaugural conference planning committee. I also served as treasurer and most recently assisted the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources staff with teaching a Floodplain Management Review class.
Outside of MnAFPM, I am a member on the Scholarship Committee with American Council of Engineering Companies—Minnesota Chapter.
The most rewarding would be working to solve challenging problems.
I really like the challenges that come with each project. To get more specific, I really like:
Seeing the many projects I’ve been involved with taken from an initial "pipe dream" to construction and providing the many benefits to communities.
