Abstract

TJU CO^mi A Report from the Chair of the Board of Certified Consulting Meteorologists In January, at the AMS Annual Meeting in Nashville, I successfully made the transition from Chair of the Board of Certified Consulting Meteorologists to past-chair of the board: from the hectic role of organizing and directing the board's activities to the role of distinguished, venerable counselor-to-the- board. It has been a successful year for the CCM program, and I'd like to provide an update of the past year's activities and insight into some of the new initiatives that will be undertaken in 1994. First, I'd like to thank Dave Speigler, the outgoing past-chair of the board, for his outstanding leadership and efforts as a member of the board and its chair over the past five years. Dave's perspective and copious amounts of perspiration expended on behalf of the CCM program will be missed. Next, I'd like to introduce your new chairman, Kit Wagner. Kit is a "seasoned veteran" of the board and looks forward to hearing from you. And finally, I'd like to introduce the two new members of the board, Edwin X Berry and Stephen A. Vigeant. Both new members bring strong technical credentials and firm commitments to the CCM program. The CCM board now consists of seven members. Their names and locations are John A.
