Description:

-The Station Scientist Committee is dedicated to fostering a greater awareness and outreach in terms of science education for our viewers.
-We are in charge of the annual Station Scientist Session during each AMS Broadcast Conference. In recent years, we have had some wonderful experts present and are always looking for new topics to bring to the table!

The weather, water, and climate enterprise is incredibly important to society. Our work requires tremendous coordination, commitment, and collaboration between tens of thousands of people, all of whom are dedicated to success.
AMS has created a structure of volunteer support for this coordination and collaboration that includes six commissions overseeing 140+ boards and committees.

The information provided in this application will be provided to the various commissioners as they begin making appointments for the committees and boards of their commission. Please note that most appointments are made in the fall for terms that begin in January, so you may not hear anything for some time after submitting this form. Also note that great effort is put into maintaining balance on committees and boards in terms of sector, discipline, etc., so you may not be used on a specific committee or board immediately.
