Thank you to all who came out to the NWS office today for our last chapter meeting of the year. Jim Coker from the Jefferson County EMA spoke about the upcoming 2021 World Games that will be held in Birmingham and how vital preparedness activities will be to support such a large venue. He also spoke about the evacuation of Samford stadium on August 31st when tornado warnings were being issued to the southwest of Jefferson County. Samford is fortunate enough to have several sturdy structures nearby to shelter thousand of fans.
Congratulations to the following individuals for accepting officer positions for 2018.
Scott Martin - President
Johnny Knobloch - Vice-President
Bill Murray - Secretary/Treasurer

The Central Alabama Chapter of the NWA recently held nominations for chapter officers. Unfortunately those nominated for President had to decline their nominations for various reasons. While I think we can fill the other positions fairly easily, we have to have a commander and chief. If no one comes forward to take on this position, the chapter will be placed in a non-active status. Please give this opportunity some serious consideration and contact me if you have any questions.
The leadership of the Central Alabama Chapter of the National Weather Association encourages you to be part of this important organization. The local chapter allows local meteorologists and weather enthusiasts to network and get involved in educating each other about our favorite subject: Weather!
While there are many excellent speakers right in our own backyard, we occasionally like to invite weather experts from around the country, and your membership dues gives us that opportunity.
