*Deadline: May 1*

Hello, PCC Grads!


The PCC Graduate Student Steering Committee (PGraSC) is a group of ~12 PCC
grad students from a diverse group of departments (if you're getting this
email, you definitely count as a PCC grad student!). The committee formed
last year in response to feedback from the June 2016 "All-Hands" meeting,
which identified the need for a more organized grad student steering body
within the PCC.


Each year, half the committee will rotate out, to be replaced by new
members - namely, YOU! We are currently seeking nominations (for yourself
or others) to begin a 2-year position on PGraSC starting this summer (if
you have less than 2 years left and want to get involved, nominate yourself
anyhow! 1 years placements are possible, 2 years are nice to maintain some
overlap). The *committee meets once per quarter*, with sub-committees
potentially meeting more often if you're working on something specific.


*This can be as much or as little work as you'd like it to be* - this year,
PGraSC activities included re-vamping the GSS (Graduate Student Seminars)
and organizing the very successful, first ever PCC Spring Symposium in
early April.


We encourage applications from all PCC departments, with a particular plea
towards historically under-represented PCC departments (ie those outside of
Atmos/ESS/Ocean). The goal is to have no more than a few people from the
same department on the committee together at any given time.


Please send your nominations to *Michael Diamond <*diamond2 at uw.edu*>* by
next* Monday, May 1, 2017*.


The current committee will select new members (with the goal of maintaining
a diverse representation of PCC departments) at their spring meeting, which
all PCC grad students are welcome to attend. The meeting will be held
Tuesday, May 2, at 3:00 pm in ATG 406.


*Please consider nominating yourself or your PCC friends* for this super
fun, super chill committee! *It looks great on your CV.* If you'd like more
information, you can contact any of us current committee members (listed
below). Have a lovely week!


Best,


PGraSC 2016-17



*Additional info:*


This committee will serve to represent the diverse needs and perspectives
of the PCC graduate student community to the PCC Board. In addition, the
committee will serve as a focal point through which to promote a diverse
and supportive community of climate scientists to foster the exchange of
ideas and knowledge across disciplines. Furthermore, it will provide an
organizational structure for the graduate students in support of the
broader Program on Climate Change goals.
