Second Satellite Meteorology Student Reception

Hold The TIME!

Are you interested in networking with professionals in the field of satellite meteorology? Did you attend the Satellite Meteorology Student Reception at last year’s AMS Annual Meeting? Last year’s inaugural student reception was a relaxed, evening event that provided a great opportunity for specialized satellite meteorological mentors (senior professionals) to network with energetic students who were preparing to enter the professional ranks.

This year, the second Satellite Meteorology Student Reception will be held during the 96th American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting at the New Orleans Convention Center on Monday, January 11, 2016 from 7:00-9:00PM located in the foyer space outside the rooms numbered in the 250s. Our planning committee is exploring ‘speed networking’, similar to ‘speed dating’, where the mentors (satellite meteorology professionals) will roam between tables at set intervals so that the students are introduced to a wide array of professions in the field of satellite meteorology. The speed networking will be followed by a social with light hors d'oeuvres which will be a great time for open networking. This will allow the students and the mentors of their selected discipline to have extended conversations after their speed-mentoring introductions.

On behalf of the 12th Symposium on New Generation Operational Environmental Satellite Systems, the 4th Symposium on the Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation,  and the 6th Conference on the Transition of Research to Operations, we invite all students with an strong interest in satellite meteorology or who are participating in these symposia (orally and/or poster)  to join us!
