Note from the NWA: The RON is on at the AMS 99th Annual Meeting.
The Research to Operations Nexus (RON) Meetup provides the opportunity for an interactive meetup between research and operational meteorologists. For the second time, a RON Meetup will take place at the 99th American Meteorological Society (AMS) Annual Meeting.
During the Meetup, groups rotate through a number of stations in speed-mentoring fashion and discuss a variety of ideas and themes that could benefit forecast and warning operations. The goal is simple: to build and develop new relationships in the nexus.
Ron Przybylinski, the former Science and Operations Officer (SOO) of the National Weather Service Forecast Office in St. Louis, Missouri, left us the legacy of 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. Research interactions with Ron led to large field projects that provided the great benefit both to operations and the general knowledge. He inspired the idea of the RON Meetups, which have taken place at the National Weather Association (NWA) Annual Meetings since 2015. For the second time, a RON Meetup will take place at the 99th American Meteorological Society (AMS) Annual Meeting.
The 2019 AMS RON Meetup will take place on Monday, January 7, 2019, from 4:15–6:00 p.m. in the North Ballroom AB, Phoenix Convention Center North Building, 100 Level. There is no additional cost to attend, but you must be registered for the 2019 AMS Annual Meeting. Seating is limited to the first 100 registrants, but walk-ins are welcome. Light snacks and beverages will be served. For more information, please contact co-facilitator Greg Stumpf.
