Hello, Atmospheric Sciences students. It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to UNC Asheville’s student chapter of the American Meteorological Society (AMS). Here, you will find community and special opportunities in our field that are available to you.

Our goal this year is to give you an opportunity to connect with other students in the Atmospheric Sciences and get to know one another more, as well as become more involved with the atmospheric sciences. We will host fun events that will help encourage you to connect with the other ATMS students and develop friendships. We will also host events that will introduce you to career opportunities in meteorology.

We have an official AMS email account——that we use to communicate with the ATMS students about news and upcoming events in our organization. We also have a Facebook page (UNC-Asheville AMS Student Chapter), a Twitter (@UNCAweather) page, and an Instagram (uncaams) page where you can find additional information regarding our club. The success of our club is built upon your involvement with the club. You can get involved by being on the lookout for emails from us, following us on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages, and, most importantly, attending our club meetings. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, or concerns, or if you are not receiving our emails or are having trouble accessing our social media accounts.

We look forward to having an awesome year, and we hope it will be made awesome by your involvement with our club.

Thank you,
Michelle Hauser, 2021–22 President of the AMS Student Chapter
