Golden Jubilee Fund – Turning CMOS 50th Anniversary Celebrations into Action
January 1, 2017 is the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Canadian Meteorological Society (CMS) and the 40th anniversary of the addition of the oceanographic disciplines to create the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (CMOS). During this period, CMOS and its members have made invaluable contributions to Canadian and global science. They have improved the safety of Canadians and assisted economic advancement in Canada. To celebrate these achievements, CMOS is planning a series of activities for 2017 including:
- A public webcast by prominent scientists or spokespersons in collaboration with the Canadian Climate Forum, to provide credible scientific information on climate change to Canadians; Funding is required to ensure adequate funds to continue this type of important event.
- A special session at the CMOS Congress in
in June 2017, with invited speakers, international guests and publicity in the media. Funding is required to ensure we attract, promote and pay for these events. Toronto
- A special publication highlighting the best of Atmosphere-Ocean over the years, showcasing the “state of the art” of our disciplines. Funding is required to offset publication costs.
The Council of CMOS has created the Golden Jubilee Fund for 2016-17 that will provide CMOS with the resources to showcase our rich history and our sciences through these activities. A tax-deductible donation to the Golden Jubilee Fund will offer individuals, organizations and companies the opportunity to support CMOS in our ambition to be more visible as we celebrate our special anniversary.
You can donate today using the DONATE ONLINE NOW button on the CMOS web site home page. Donations will be accepted any time in the coming year, but project planning in fall 2016 will be linked to available budgets, so your early consideration of this venture is important.
CMOS thanks you for your support. Watch the CMOS Bulletin and CMOS web site for updates on these and other 50th anniversary activities.
