Greetings fellow Atmospheric Science majors and welcome to the UNC Asheville Student Chapter of the American Meteorological Society!

This page serves as an information resource for details about upcoming meetings, events, and links to our social media pages. Last year was a very successful year for the Chapter as we reestablished official UNC Asheville Student Organization status and collaborated with the newly reinstated local Asheville AMS Chapter. This year, we hope to support those accomplishments and build upon them 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 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 the students involved in the Student Chapter. If you have any comments or suggestions on how we can improve, please contact any of the chapter officers or the Atmospheric Sciences professors.

Additionally, the Chapter has a Facebook page that will be used as another way to post upcoming meetings and events. Both the Facebook page and this page are good resources for finding information about upcoming events; however, the primary communication between the officers and members will be via email.

We look forward to a great year filled with new opportunities, activities, connections, and friendships as we explore the variety of career pathways within the Atmospheric Sciences!

Thank you,
Massey Bartolini, 2015–16 President of the AMS Student Chapter
