2019 AMS Elections

Voting for the 2020 AMS President-Elect (President in 2021) and Council is now closed. The elected leaders of AMS are charged with advancing AMS’s goals in the areas of weather, water and climate.  We value and appreciate your vote.

The AMS Nominating Committee welcomes recommendations from the membership of candidates for President-Elect and Council each year, which will be considered as that slate is prepared. Such recommendations will be most helpful if they are sent to the Nominating Committee by the end of December and are in the form of a 1-page letter describing the proposed candidate’s background and qualifications.
