Hello, students of the Atmospheric Sciences! It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to UNC Asheville’s Student Chapter of the American Meteorological Society (AMS), where unique opportunities in our field and community are available to you!

It is our goal this year to be the social and professional nexus of the ATMS student population. To supplement your education in the classroom, our focus is on career development, networking, and service to the greater campus and Asheville community. We will host several events to encourage connections between you, your peers, and other professionals so that you may be better prepared for your future in the atmospheric sciences.

Be on the lookout for communication from the official AMS email account ( that will advertise the developments, news, and events of the organization. The success of career workshops, student and professional panels, department mixers, and service opportunities is contingent upon your contribution of time and energy to our AMS chapter!

The Chapter has a Facebook page and a Twitter page (@UNCAweather) that serve as additional avenues for interaction between you and others, as well as the dissemination of additional information, resources, and opportunities you might not get from our events. Fully involve yourself by keeping an eye on your email and social media. Please feel free to email us if you have trouble accessing these accounts or are not receiving our emails, or if you have any comments, questions, or suggestions!

We look forward to an exciting and full year ahead, and hope that it will be enriched by your membership.

Thank you,
Ryan Sidney Jenkins, 2019–20 President of the AMS Student Chapter
