The Council of the American Meteorological Society invites members and friends of the AMS to submit nominations for consideration for the Society Awards, Lecturers, Named Symposia, Fellows, Honorary Members, and nominees for elective Officers and Councilors of the Society. Take this opportunity to recognize peers and colleagues who have demonstrated exceptional dedication and contributions to the atmospheric and related science fields. This year AMS is honoring Edward N. Lorenz by renaming the Teaching Excellence Award after the pioneer meteorologist.

As AMS president, J. Marshall Shepherd, emphasizes, “We’re particularly interested in promoting nominations for awards and advancement to Fellow for members in the private sector, including our broadcaster colleagues, and in the ‘related sciences,’ to include oceanography, hydrology, climatology, atmospheric chemistry, space weather, environmental remote sensing (including the engineering and management of systems for observations), and the social sciences, etc.”

Nominations  are due May 1st, 2013. Check the website to view all available awards and nominating procedures.
