Oregon AMS members:

I would like to take a quick moment and officially welcome our new 2011/2012 Oregon AMS executive council that was recently elected by our members in May. I would also like to thank the members of last years executive council for their dedication and hard work. The new executive council for 2011/2012 is as follows:

President - Steve Pierce (former Vice President)
Vice President - Bobby Corser (former President)
Secretary - Mark Nelsen (former councilor)
Treasurer - John Rinier (re-elected)

Charlie Feris (re-elected)
George Miller (re-elected)
Tyree Wilde (re-elected)

We are very excited for the upcoming AMS season, which will kick off in September. Many of you have asked for an updated climate debate or series of meetings, along with perhaps landing a few well known regional or national guest speakers. With about 180 members, our treasury is nearing the point where we may now look at expanding our reach to guest speakers outside of our local area. If you have any guest speaker suggestions, please let me know. We will also continue with our annual Winter Weather Forecast meeting at OMSI in late October. For now we are officially on summer break! So get outside and enjoy the summer with family and friends and we will see you all back again in September for our kick-off meeting of the 2011/2012 season. More details to come in late August.
