Abstract

National Council of Industrial Meteorologists Summer Intern Program The National Council of Industrial Meteorologists (NCIM) was organized in 1968 to further the professional practice of industrial meteorology. Individual members of NCIM provide services including forecasting for clients such as highway departments and power companies with specialized needs in areas including engineering and construction, shipping, oil production, agricultural, media information, and motion picture/television production. Additionally, service in forensic meteorology is provided to the legal profession. Requirements for membership in NCIM are similar to those of the AMS's Certified Consulting Meteorologist program. Program Description Summer internships are for $1800 per summer season of employment with a firm having an NCIM member. The intent of this program is to provide work experience for up to four students nationwide to help defray their expenses for working at an NCIM member's business.
