A few things to note about this calendar.
· Events added to this calendar are NOT automatically approved as advanced or basic training opportunities. You MUST get local chapter approval for training hours before attending.
· This is obviously not an exhaustive calendar of all the incredible online opportunities happening right now. Your chapter training directors have been made aware of the calendar and will be adding to it shortly. Please email Mary Pearl (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have something you’d like to add to the calendar
· Each event should have an Organizer listed as a TMN chapter or organization. Please refer questions about the specific events to those organizers, not the TMN state office.
We hope this helps with our TMN volunteers ability to maintain connection and educational engagement during this period of shutdown.

Chapter Meeting – LOCATION and SPEAKER CHANGE
April 18, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Chelsea Burnett from Texas Storm Chasers will present Severe Weather Awareness Storm Chasing at the April Chapter meeting. She will cover three basic areas of weather: lightning, tornadoes and flooding. She will focus on the safety precautions before, during and after severe weather events. In addition myths surrounding weather will be debunked and replaced with the most up-to-date facts. Several video clips of Texas Storm Chasers past chase experiences will be shown.
An avid weather junkie since toddlerhood, Chelsea Burnett grew up in Oklahoma and relocated to Texas 12 years ago. Her chase career has been slowly evolving since early 2011, when she met David Reimer (owner of TSC) and Jenny Brown (fellow TSC member) after attending a local storm chaser conference. She holds a ham-radio license and is certified through the Skywarn Storm Spotter program, with a few University of Oklahoma School of Meteorology program semesters under her belt. She enjoys hitting the open road for travel to area state and national parks in her spare time, as well as expressing her passion for photography through lifestyle outdoor family sessions in the DFW area. She enjoys chasing storms at every opportunity, especially alongside boyfriend Adam Lucio, owner of Illinois Storm Chasers. Chelsea resides just down the street from Jenny with her young son Marshall in the Lake Lewisville area.
The Elm Fork Chapter meets the third Thursday of the month. Meet and greet at 9 am, business meeting starts at 9:30, followed by a presentation.
NOTE: this meeting will not be held in our regular location – Also parking across the street has been cut in half. Please carpool if you can.
