The eight voting members of the committee are drawn from academia, balancing the membership to represent a range of colleges and universities and to reflect the concerns of both instructors and researchers. The committee also includes representatives from NASA, NOAA, and NSF, as well as from UCAR and NCAR, who are important sources of information and advice about events and conditions that can profoundly affect the program.
