Smoky Mountain Chapter of the American Meteorological Society
Purpose: To foster the growth of operational meteorology and the atmospheric sciences in East Tennessee by providing the community with a social and scientific point of contact for meteorological, hydrological, and other related scientific interests; to encourage collaborative research among its members; and to engage in continuing education on the latest developments in the various branches of the hydrometeorological and atmospheric sciences.
Membership: Open to anyone in East Tennessee with an interest in meteorology, atmospheric sciences, and related fields, and who agrees to abide by the requirements of the chapter constitution. Membership in the national American Meteorological Society is not required. Annual dues are $20 for regular members, $30 for couples, and $10 for students (payable to AMS Smoky Mountain Chapter). A member with a family member who doesn't qualify for the student rate can still pay $30 for the annual dues. Visitors are welcome to our meetings and will be allowed two free visits. After these two free visits, visitors are expected to become members and pay the annual dues. Those interested in joining should contact the chapter president.
Meetings: two per year with one in the spring and one in the fall. The spring meeting is held at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville; the fall meeting is held at the NWS Forecast Office in Morristown. Sign up for the email listserv at https://www.climatemodeling.org/mailman/listinfo/ams-smc
