Committee Member: Local Chapter Affairs Committee

Starts: 01-01-2022
Ends: 01-01-2025
Location: Online Opportunity

Description:

The AMS Local Chapter Affairs Committee (LCAC) is looking for motivated applicants to become our newest members for 2022.  LCAC members are comprised of the diversity that is the American Meteorological Society, and we seek ways to inspire and empower members and leaders of the AMS Local Chapters so they may connect and engage their communities. Member duties include sharing resources with chapters through social media, webinars, and regional representatives, along with hosting our annual chapter officers breakfast at the AMS Annual Meeting and more fun activities throughout the year!

Applicants should provide a cover letter to this AMS Community Volunteer form or to amschaps@ametsoc.org.

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.
