FPAW Steering Committee (SC) Self-Nomination Deadline

Hello, FPAW members.

This is your reminder that Friday, August 18, 2023 at 5:00 P.M. EDT, the deadline to self-nominate for one of the four upcoming three-year slots on the FPAW Steering Committee, is fast approaching!

Effective September 30, 2023, there will be two openings for representatives of the Aviation Weather Users community, one to represent Aviation Weather Providers and one more from the Aviation Weather Researchers, Engineers and Developers (RED) and Academicians community. If you desire to serve FPAW, Matthias and I would like to encourage you, the members of FPAW, to self-nominate for one of the four open positions. Alternatively, if you know of someone else who you think should serve as a member of the FPAW SC, regardless of whether they are a current FPAW member, feel free to forward this message to them and have them submit their own nomination to us.

The process for self-nomination is simple: send an email to Matthias (msteiner@ucar.edu) and me (mfronzak@mitre.org) that contains (1) a 1-2 paragraph expression of interest in serving on the FPAW SC, including information about why you should be selected, (2) the constituency (Users, RED and Academia, Providers) that you would be representing, and (3) a current CV/resume. That’s it!

As soon as possible after the Friday, August 18, 2023 deadline, we will communicate the slate of candidates to the entire FPAW community. In early-/mid-September, the FPAW SC will select the individuals who will fill the four open slots, and we will welcome them to the FPAW SC shortly thereafter.

We hope you’ll consider joining us and helping to shape the future of aviation weather!

Matthias Steiner and Matt Fronzak
