American Meteorological Society - Salisbury University Chapter
Founded in 1919, the American Meteorological Society (AMS) is comprised of more than 13,000 members that includes scientists, researchers, educators, broadcast meteorologists, students, weather enthusiasts and other professionals in the fields of weather, water and climate. The Salisbury University Student Chapter of the AMS was founded in 2013 to bring together students and faculty of Salisbury University with an interest in Atmospheric Science. This student-run organization promotes the development and dissemination of information and education, as well as the advancement of professional applications in Atmospheric Sciences. AMS membership is open to anyone with a strong interest in Atmospheric Science. While most members are Geography majors with an Atmospheric Science track, the Chapter is open to all Salisbury University students. Chapter activities include outreach programs with local schools, field trips, forecasting contests and fundraisers to support student travel to the annual AMS conference. The organization also holds social events each semester to provide an opportunity to get to know each other outside of a classroom setting. Meetings are typically held once per month during the Spring and Fall semesters. The Salisbury University Student Chapter of the AMS strives to bring those interested in Atmospheric Sciences together and to have fun in the process. Anyone who is interested in Atmospheric Sciences is encouraged to join our student organization.
