Title: Webinar #60 - CoCoRaHS WxTalk: The National Weather Association (NWA) - who are we, what do we do?
Date: Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017
Time: 1:00 PM Eastern, Noon Central, 11:00 AM Mountain, 10:00 AM Pacific”The National Weather Association (NWA) was incorporated in 1975, with just a few hundred members who were committed to growing a strong, vibrant organization created by, and for, operational meteorologists. Today, with membership in the thousands, the dedication to the science and service of operational meteorology remains. The NWA is a non-profit, member-led professional organization with a mission of supporting and promoting excellence in operational meteorology. You don’t need to be a meteorologist to join the NWA – you just need to love weather and support and appreciate operational meteorology.
NWA members can share information, news, and studies with others in the operational meteorology community in many ways. Members can contribute and engage with others through committee work, through correspondence or articles in NWA publications such as the Newsletter and the Journal of Operational Meteorology, and via our social media accounts (fb.com/nwasorg on Facebook, @nwas on Twitter, nwasorg on Instagram, and NationalWXAssoc on YouTube). Our highlight of each year is the Annual Meeting, which occurs in early fall and allows members to both lead and attend fascinating presentations on a variety of topics, participate in workshops and short courses, and simply network and have fun with great people from every corner of the weather industry, from well-known senior professionals to weather enthusiasts. Weather broadcasters have the opportunity to earn the NWA Radio and Television Weathercaster Seals of Approval, and those producing digital weather media can earn an NWA Digital Seal of Approval. The NWA also sponsors an Annual Awards program to recognize excellence in operational meteorology. Our collaborative organization, the National Weather Association Foundation, offers college scholarships and grants to K-12 teachers and others through fundraisers and tax-deductible donations.
In this presentation, Gail will look back at a little weather warning and forecasting history. She’ll then follow with a look to the future with her “Top 5 Weather Innovations” that promise to revolutionize weather warnings and forecasts over the next 25 years.
