As Deputy Director, Seitter was involved in all aspects of the Society’s programs including moving the many AMS Specialty and Annual Meeting toward electronic submission and dissemination of author’s materials, implementing the recommendations from the 10-Year Vision Study, and continuing working with the publications department.

Before joining the AMS, Seitter was on the faculty at the University of Lowell, now University of Massachusetts at Lowell. He earned his undergraduate degree in meteorology at the Pennsylvania State University and a doctorate in geophysical sciences at the University of Chicago. A native of Marion, OH, Seitter had a postdoctoral appointment at the Air Force Geophysical Laboratory at Hanscom Air Force Base before moving to the University of Lowell.

He is also a member of many other societies and organizations in the sciences and scholarly publishing and serves on a number of advisory boards. He has given numerous invited lectures and published a number of papers in AMS and other scientific and publishing journals.

The AMS, founded in 1919, is the nation’s leading professional society for those involved in the atmospheric and related sciences. With more than 11,000 members, the Society promotes the development and dissemination of information on atmospheric, oceanic, and hydrologic sciences through scientific journals, conferences, and public education programs across the country.
