The National Weather Association is a member-led, all inclusive, non-profit, professional association supporting and promoting excellence in operational meteorology and related activities since 1975. Members have many opportunities to share information, news, studies and concerns related to operational meteorology and related activities through committee work, submitting correspondence or articles to NWA publications such as the Newsletter, National Weather Digest and the online Electronic Journal of Operational Meteorology, making presentations or leading workshops at the Annual Meeting, helping to maintain and add information to the NWA Web site, and to network with great people in a wide variety of careers (from well-known senior professionals to weather enthusiasts).
Members join together on many outreach education/training initiatives to students, users of weather information, and the general public. Members also have the opportunity to volunteer for many leadership positions in the organization. Weather Broadcasters have the opportunity to earn the NWA Radio and Television Weather caster Seals of Approval. The NWA also sponsors an Annual Awards program to recognize excellence, college scholarships, grants to K-12 teachers and other programs.
