A message from our President:
August Forecast: Convergence in Saint Louis
It may be May, so it may be that you are thinking about August. Have you registered for our National Weather Association 43rd Annual Meeting in Saint Louis yet? Have you booked your hotel? What are you waiting for? The early bird gets the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. She who books first, books best. Start checking flights if you want that window seat for admiring the atmosphere. Many U.S. airlines now promise to refund the difference if your purchased ticket price goes down before the flight.
When we converge to meet up, you might hook up. I mean that professionally! At the NWA annual meeting, you might find new colleagues, potential hires, and maybe even a new job opportunity. We always see old friends and meet new ones, along with well-known experts in our field. We share expertise and walk away smarter and more well-rounded.
Since our meeting last year, your NWA staff, committees and Council have been diligently working to put together a quality conference for connecting operational meteorologists in pursuit of excellence in weather forecasting, communication and service. That’s our mission—literally. READ MORE
