Virtual Northeastern Storm Conference a Success

The 46th annual Northeastern Storm Conference was held virtually April 23-25, 2021, and was a resounding success!

The Friday evening Ice Breaker Speaker was meteorologist and Lyndon State College alumnus Pete Bouchard (’92). He is currently a broadcast meteorologist for NBC 10 in Boston, Massachusetts.

The virtual conference featured career-focused panel discussions to workshops on topics like science communication.

Saturday night’s Banquet Dinner Speaker was Bryan Norcross. Currently, Bryan is a Hurricane Specialist at WPLG in Miami, FL. This happens to be where he began his television career almost 40 years ago!

Bernadette Woods Placky closed out the conference as the Sunday Keynote Speaker. Bernadette is the Chief Meteorologist and Director for Climate Central’s Climate Matters program.

We look forward to the 47th annual Northeastern Storm Conference in March 2022, to be held in Burlington, Vermont! Check out https://lyndonams.org/nesc for later details.
