Greetings fellow atmospheric science students and welcome to the UNC Asheville Student Chapter of the American Meteorological Society (AMS)!

This page serves as an information resource for details about upcoming meetings, events, and links to our social media pages. Last year was an extremely active year as we collaborated often with the local Asheville AMS Chapter and offered meetings with informative guest speakers. This year, we hope to support those interactions and build upon them further to serve our fellow members and the greater UNC Asheville community in an even better way. We plan to hold social events, host guest speakers, encourage peer mentoring, provide local weather forecasting, and much more.

However, none of these goals will be successful without your participation in the Chapter! We strive to create events geared toward networking, both on and off campus, and career development for the benefit of all students involved in the Student Chapter. If you have any comments or suggestions on how we can improve, please send an email to the Chapter account ( or the Atmospheric Sciences professors.

Additionally, the Chapter has both a Facebook page and a Twitter page (@UNCAweather) that will be used as other outlets to post upcoming meetings and events. These social media outlets and this web page are great resources for finding information about upcoming events. However, the primary communication between the officers and members will be via email to the UNCA ATMS list. Please contact a professor if you are not on this email list.

We look forward to a great year filled with new opportunities, activities, connections, and friendships as we explore the numerous career pathways within the atmospheric sciences!

Thank you,
Kaitlyn Kelly, 2018–19 President of the AMS Student Chapter
