AMS Election Update & Meeting Reminders

As a reminder, due to no April meeting scheduled, we will be taking nominations for the 2016/17 Oregon AMS executive council at tomorrow night’s “Winter Weather Recap” meeting with Mark Nelsen in Beaverton. All positions on the Oregon AMS executive council are open for nomination(s) each year.

Per our governing documents, I have appointed currently seated Secretary Tyler Mode, Vice President Bobby Corser and Councilor Mark Nelsen to oversee the election. They will be your election committee. Ballots will be going out via e-mail well ahead of our annual election meeting in May.Our May meeting will also be our final meeting of the year where we will announce final election results.

Dr. Cliff Mass returns in May — We are excited to host Dr. Cliff Mass (Univ. of WA.) for the first time in four years. He will beour featured guest speaker in our final meeting of the season on Thursday, May 19th at 7pm. Location: TBD. This will be a dinner meeting. Cliff plans to discuss the large gap in radar coverage in Oregon, along with an update on what is new with Univ. of WA. modeling data (WRF, NAM, etc…). This is sure to be a packed house! Don’t miss out. More details to come!

Jim Cantore says “thank you” to Oregon AMS — The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore recently entertained our invite to come speak to the Oregon AMS. After detailed thought he politely declined, sighting travel time from Atlanta and his rigorous work schedule. Special thanks to Oregon AMS member Dave Sweeney for helping us reach out to Jim. Maybe next year???

Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow night. For complete meeting details see below.
