    Finding colleges with meteorology classes, if no degree
    I live in KY and want to find a college or university that has any type of meteorology classes, either in preparation for a degree or just for beginners. I want to be a Storm Chaser to accumulate more tornado data to try and create a more advanced warning system

    Conference season is fast approaching, and there are a variety of organization meetings, chase events, and SKYWARN seminars to choose from.

    * National Storm Chaser Convention 2006 is the key event to attend! Itís being held at Denver between Feb 17-19. The cost is $79 and there is no deadline.

    * National Severe Weather Workshop 2006 is another fine choice, being held at Oklahoma City on March 2-4. You can get in for as little as $40, but late registration prices take effect in February. Thereís always a strong presence here from the OU, NSSL, and SPC community.

    * TESSA 2006 storm conference will be held in the Fort Worth area on March 11. Some exciting highlights include a presentation by chase pioneer David Hoadley, Stormtrackís own Tim Marshall talking about Hurricane Katrina, and a discussion on chase ethics by Charles Doswell.

    * Central Iowa NWA Severe Storm Conference will take place in Des Moines on March 23-25. As this is somewhat of an industry and professional conference, the cost to get in is $125, however students get a sizable discount.

    * North Texas Spotter Training is always top-notch, especially the handful of classes taught by severe weather legend Alan Moller. A fun and informative event is guaranteed, and itís free!
