Unidata is governed by its community. Our governing committees facilitate consensus building for future directions of the Unidata Program and establish standards of involvement for the community.
The Unidata Program Center is seeking new people to serve on Unidata's Strategic Advisory and Users Committees. This is your chance to make a difference on behalf of the Unidata community. As William Gallus, the current Chair of the Unidata Strategic Advisory Committee notes, “Serving as a member of these committees puts you in the driver's seat to help shape the future of Unidata and thus the future of real time weather data delivery and the means to work with it.”
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. We're looking for help identifying new tools and services — along with improvements to our existing offerings — that will advance the scientific and educational goals of the community.
Nominations are open until July 18, 2014 for committee terms beginning with the September and October 2014 committee meetings. 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 in the fall of 2014?
