Greetings! We would like to give you, our members and the best part of the AMS, an opportunity to help promote the 2013 AMS Annual Meeting planned for 6-10 January 2013 at the Austin (Texas) Convention Center, an unparalleled and one-of-a-kind professional development event. We’ve created a first-ever brochure highlighting many opportunities to connect, engage, and interact with each other on numerous interesting topics, many of which are related to our theme, “Taking Predictions to the Next Level: Expanding Beyond Today's Weather, Water, and Climate Forecasting and Projections”.
Here you can print, save, and distribute this detailed tri-fold brochure, or a simple one-page or half-page ad to encourage your friends and colleagues to join us for what I know will be a professionally rewarding and personally satisfying event!
Even if you can't attend, we hope you'll know someone who can and pass this valuable information to them on our behalf. If you have any questions regarding the materials, or would like some printed versions shipped to your address, please contact Judith Ziemnik at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and see you in Austin!
Ken Carey and Troy Kimmel
