NWSEO MEMBER SPOTLIGHT
Meet NWSEO Member Barry Lambert
(July 9, 2018) Barry Lambert begins his 16th year in a row as Steward of WFO CTP (Branch 1-86 - State College PA) and is completing his second year as NWSEO Eastern Region Vice Chairman. Barry has also been a long time 18-year member of NWSEO.
Originally from the “Valley” of northeast Pennsylvania, Barry earned his Master’s Degree in Meteorology from Texas Tech in 1993 and a Bachelor of Science in Earth and Environmental Science from Wilkes University. He began his career with the National Weather Service in Erie, PA before moving on to Buffalo, NY and State College, PA.
In addition to his duties as a Senior Forecaster, Barry instructs the DataStreme Project in conjunction with the American Meteorological Society. This program is a K-12 teacher professional development program in weather, ocean, and climate content areas, with a strong focus on school and community leadership. He has recently been instrumental in giving the Union a voice in the National Blend of Models (NBM) development and he has served on several Regional and Local Office Teams. Since becoming the NWSEO ER Vice Chair, he has repeatedly stepped up to support the bargaining unit employees on regional issues.
Barry continues to stay on top of local and regional issues – letting nothing fall through the cracks in support of bargaining unit employees. The tremendous, diligent and hard-working team he leads is comprised of 18 NWSEO members at WFO CTP, and will likely soon climb to 19! Barry’s secret to recruiting is, “keep the bargaining unit informed and engaged” and spell out all the tangible benefits obtained through membership.
In his spare time, you’ll find Barry on the basketball courts and in the weight room at the Y, hiking and skiing with the family or timing at his children’s swim meets.
We are so grateful for Barry’s time and dedication to the work he and the members and employees of NWS Eastern Region do every day and also, for participating in our NWSEO Member Spotlight.
