CANCELLED - 29th DuPage County Advanced Severe Weather Seminar - March 14, 2020

The DuPage Advanced Severe Weather Seminar is geared towards providing education on severe weather phenomena to trained weather spotters, including but not limited to, emergency management personnel, police, fire, public works personnel, utility workers, amateur radio operators, school safety officers, educators, and students. It is also open to the public who wish to broaden their understanding of severe weather.  

This is to inform you that the 2020 DuPage Advanced Severe Weather Seminar, scheduled for this Saturday (March 14) has been cancelled. Our event venue, Wheaton College has closed their campus to events such as ours as a response to the evolving COVID-19 situation.  Additionally, the DuPage County Health Department has advised and recommended that all gatherings over 250 participants be cancelled.  While we deeply regret the need to take this action, it is taken out of a desire to protect our constituents.

At this time, it is unknown if we will reschedule the seminar this year or work toward the 30th anniversary of the seminar next year.
