The American Meteorological Society (AMS) Science and Technology Committee (STAC) on Space Weather would like to draw your attention to the AMS Fellows Program. Nomination to Fellow is open to current Members of the American Meteorological Society.  New Fellows are elected each year, consisting of not more than two-tenths of 1 percent of all AMS Members.   The Fellows criteria states that “Those eligible for election to Fellow shall have made outstanding contributions to the atmospheric or related oceanic or hydrologic sciences or their applications during a substantial period of years.”  Space weather is included among these eligible disciplines.  The current list of AMS fellows is available at: https://www.ametsoc.org/ams/index.cfm/about-ams/ams-organization-and-administration/list-of-fellows/ <https://www.ametsoc.org/ams/index.cfm/about-ams/ams-organization-and-administration/list-of-fellows/>

This is an excellent opportunity to recognize the contributions of exceptional peers for continued innovation and support of the space weather community.  Nomination packages are due May 1, 2018.

The requirements for nomination packages are completion of on-line form (3 pages max.) and a nomination letter limited to one page, along with three one-page letters of support.  Of these three letters, at least one support letter is required from an individual outside the nominee’s home institution.  You need not contact the STAC in order to submit a nomination.  The nominator must be an AMS member, but this is not required of those writing supporting letters.
