Date: Thursday, May 11, 2017
Time: 1:00 PM Eastern, Noon Central, 11:00 AM Mountain, 10:00 AM Pacific

”The mission of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) is “to advance the atmospheric and related sciences, technologies, applications, and services for the benefit of society.” What does that really mean, though, and why is the AMS important to many more than just the television meteorologists who display the AMS certification after their name while they present their weather forecast? This webinar will explore the many ways that AMS, as a scientific and professional society, strengthens the weather, water, and climate community. Further, it will look at how several specific initiatives of the AMS have an impact far beyond the professionals working in weather and climate fields.”
