Note:  We have designed the agenda this year to appeal to both meteorology professionals and the public/educators. Below you will find the two tracks. Anyone is able to attend any of the sessions, however. 

We are pleased to announce that the Dexter and Southfield Schools will be a Wi-Fi hotspot for this year's conference.  Conference attendees are encouraged to bring their Wi-Fi enabled laptops to the conference.  Doing so will allow you to access websites mentioned during the various presentations.  In addition, some presentations will have an on-line interactive component.  While the school does have a computer lab, where some presentations will take place, computing resources at the conference will be limited.  If you have a Wi-Fi enabled laptop, bring it along! 

Color Codes:  

Red    =  Geared toward meteorology professionals and serious weather enthusiasts
Blue   =  Geared toward general public & educators
Green =  Plenary session for everyone in auditorium

The dinner is not yet finalized, but will be a catered Italian-style buffet
