Benefits of AMS Membership

There’s never been a more exciting time to be a member of the AMS! As a member of an AMS Local Chapter, I wanted to make sure that you and your fellow chapter members heard about some of the changes we’ve made to make Society membership more valuable than ever.

New and Improved Bulletin of the AMS (BAMS)
BAMS, the official organ of the Society, has been re-formatted to appeal to a broader readership. BAMS contains shorter peer-reviewed articles and a greater number of noteworthy stories. The feedback on the new BAMS has been outstanding, with many members saying they have never enjoyed it as much as they do now often reading it straight through from cover to cover. Visit the AMS Web site to view a list of recent articles.

Weatherwise Magazine
By agreement with Heldref, the publishers of Weatherwise, AMS members can now subscribe to this exciting magazine at a discounted price. Written for a general audience, Weatherwise offers a non-technical look at the latest discoveries in meteorology and climatology. The magazine’s annual Photo Contest is a breathtaking gallery of prize-winning photography. Check out the Weatherwise Web site to view the latest table of contents.

New Benefits for Associate Members
Our new Associate Member benefits package includes a subscription to either BAMS or Weatherwise, substantial discounts on journal subscriptions and meeting registration fees, access to information for members only, and much more. Annual dues are just $59 per year.

If you do not belong to the Society, I invite you to give AMS membership a try. Our Associate Member category is open to any person regardless of educational or professional background and is an excellent way for weather enthusiasts to become a part of the Society. Our full Member category is intended for individuals that have a science degree or have completed a minimum amount of coursework in meteorology (see Interpretive Memorandum for specific requirements). Members enjoy full voting privileges and the highest member discounts on journal subscriptions and meeting registration rates.

Applying for membership in the Society is easy. Simply download a membership application from our Web site and return it to us by fax or by mail. If you have any questions regarding membership or the application process, or if you would like to receive additional copies of the membership application by mail, our Member Services department is available by email at amsmem@ametsoc.org or by phone to 617-227-2425 to assist you.
