About the NWA

The NWA is a member-led, all-inclusive, 501(c)6 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 and the Journal of Operational Meteorology, making presentations or leading workshops at the Annual Meetings, helping to maintain and add information to the NWA website, 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.

The NWA is led by an elected governing board drawn from the membership and is professionally administered by executive director Janice Bunting.

The NWA recognized and encourages excellence with its long-running Seal of Approval program for broadcast meteorologists, and its new, innovated Digital Seal of Approval for digital providers of weather information. The NWA also sponsors an Annual Awards program to recognize excellence, college scholarships, grants to K-12 teachers, and other programs.

Membership fees provide full voting membership, monthly NWA Newsletters, Journal of Operational Meteorology articles, reduced registration fees at NWA Annual Meetings, and much more.
