Abstract

Editor's note: Elbert W. Friday Jr. and Thomas R. Karl are the 2002 candidates for AMS president-elect. In order to help our membership select its leaders, the Society asked the candidates to give a short response to the question: "What do you see as the challenges facing the Society, and how would you address them if elected?" Following are their responses, along with a brief biographical sketch of each candidate. Elbert W . (Joe) Friday Jr. The major challenge facing the atmospheric sciences community is the ability to speak with one voice to the rest of society. We have three vital components of our community: the academic, private, and public sectors. Each sector has its own culture, and yet they are vitally dependent on each other. We must learn to appre- ciate the differences while concentrating on the common concerns and needs. I am impressed with the ability of the physics, chemistry, and astronomy commu- nities, for example, to address the needs of their science, agree on the highest pri- orities, and present a single voice to all the players in our society that can influence their future, be it Congress, federal funding agencies, or the general public.
