Unidata is governed by its community. Our governing committees facilitate consensus building for future directions for the Unidata Program and establish standards of involvement for the community.
The Unidata Program Center is seeking new people to serve on Unidata's Policy and Users Committees. This is your chance to make a difference on behalf of the Unidata community. As Steven Businger, the current Chair of the Unidata Policy Committee states, "Over time, these two governing committees have provided important guidance in setting goals, accomplishing objectives, and helping to set future directions for the program."
We are looking for creative people at U.S. universities and colleges who are using Unidata products and services — or who are familiar with Unidata — to help guide the program in addressing the needs of our broadening community. We need the insights of active educators and researchers to spot new opportunities and take advantage of the expanding range of scientific data, and to identify the new tools and services that will advance the scientific and educational goals of the community.
There will be several openings on each committee. Why not consider nominating one of your colleagues (or yourself!) to serve a three-year term, beginning this October, 2012?
To make a nomination, use the Nomination Form.
