The Great Lakes Meteorology Conference (GLMC) is an annual student-run conference featuring speakers from the atmospheric sciences/meteorology field. The first GLMC was organized by Steve Jackman, former president of our student chapter. The inspiration for this conference came from the Annual Northeastern Storm Conference, which is currently ran by the Northern Vermont University – Lyndon Chapter of the AMS/NWA. Speakers come from diverse backgrounds, including broadcasting, aviation, emergency management operations, military, academia, and many more! GLMC provides great networking opportunities for students, as they may connect with speakers and the entities they represent.
GLMC is typically held in the Ballrooms of Valparaiso University’s Harre Union during the spring semester. The conference is a one-day event (9am-7pm), and your registration fee includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is open to any student, faculty, industry representative, or meteorologically minded individual. Additionally, the Valparaiso University Storm Intercept Team (VUSIT) hosts a case study for all conference attendees!
