A message from our President:
If you read this, I will pay you…
Compliments. If you read all the way through this, I will pay you compliments!
If you stare into the mirror for a while, you’ll notice things that you have never seen before. You’ll definitely notice that you’ve aged and changed. That’s not a bad thing if you account for it in your limits and in your strengths. The National Weather Association has also aged and changed. We are wiser and intend to have a long, healthy life. That’s why we follow best practices for organizational, financial, and legal security. Expect to see some of these changes in our updated Bylaws and amended Articles of Incorporation. They will be different, but different is not bad when it has a good reason behind it. Without change, there is no progress.
Many NWA members may wonder what the staff and Council do behind the scenes. You need to know your National Weather Association is working hard to ensure our organization has a positive and robust future, continuing our mission of supporting operational meteorologists. READ MORE
