Student Master Class
Sunday, August 26
6:30pm - 8:00pm
Students are placed into small groups with NWS subject matter experts. Brief, interactive lecture-style learning about a particular type of high-impact weather takes place, and then students work through a case together with their small-group mentors. This gives students an opportunity to develop real-world skill in forecasting high-impact weather events and also allows them to network with NWS folks.

Twitter Mixer
Sunday, August 26
5:30pm - 9:00pm
Bringing back the successful WxTwitter Mixer from last year! This year, the event will be held at the hotel bar at the Marriott St. Louis Grand. There will be a weather hashtag competition, and the winner will receive a discount on next year's Annual Meeting registration!

Research Operations Nexus (RON) Meetup
Monday, August 27
6:30pm - 9:00pm
One of the many legacies that Ron Przybylinski left us was his unending motivation to interconnect weather operations and research in strong and enduring ways. Ron was a master in the transition zone, or nexus, of operations and research and the research interactions with Ron actually led to large field projects that provided great benefit both to operations and the general knowledge.

For this fourth year of the event, the NWA Meeting will provide the opportunity for an interactive Meetup between research and operational meteorologists. The goal is simple: To plant and water the seeds of collaboration between folks from the two groups, which we hope will germinate during the meeting week and blossom beyond the conference itself.
