Abstract

The AMS needs your help. When the Annual Dues Statement arrives this fall, you will find a questionnaire on the back that represents the first comprehensive demographic survey of our membership done in 15 years*. This survey will be successful only if all members take the time to complete it. Why is the Society conducting a membership survey? Last January, the AMS Council decided to establish an ad hoc Committee on Surveys in response to requests for information about our membership from many and diverse parts of the Society. These groups, whether boards of our various commissions or officers of the AMS, need to understand the character of our membership in order to carry out their responsibilities and to ensure that the needs of all parts of the AMS are met. There is much we need to know about our members. We need to understand the makeup and size of the various constituencies and their growth with time; we need to identify subgroups for specialized surveys; we need to establish a baseline that will allow us to identify trends in atmospheric and related scientific fields. The last requires periodic updates, which we hope to do every several years. W
