The Young Earth System Scientists (YESS) Community is delighted to announce that the YESS Executive Committee (ExeCom) member Carla Gulizia is selected to be a part of the Global Atmospheric System Studies (GASS) panel under the WCRP Global Energy and Water Cycle Exchanges (GEWEX) Project. Another YESS member, Penelope Maher, is also invited by the GASS panel to participate in the "Precipitation Diurnal Cycle over Different Climate Regimes" project. We would like to thank the GEWEX and GASS panels for promoting the participation of the Early Career Researchers (ECRs) in their leadership activities.

We are also extremely proud to share that our YESS ExeCom member, Faten Attig Bahar, was invited by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) to join their Research Board on Weather, Climate, Water and the Environment. In addition, our ExeCom members, Gaby Langendijk and Yuhan Rao, and our YESS Officer Valentina Rabanal participated in the first virtual Joint Scientific Committee (JSC-41) Session of WCRP on behalf of the YESS community.

The YESS community would like to sincerely thank WCRP and WMO for providing these invaluable opportunities to the ECRs and we hope to make a good contribution to these activities in years to come.

Over the past weeks, the Online Events Working Group of the YESS Community has organized two science webinars (recording online) as a part of the YESS 2020 seminar series. The first webinar was given by Dr. Min-Hui Lo from National Taiwan University on From global mean sea level changes to land-atmosphere interactions. The second webinar was on Detecting climate signals through an Artificial Intelligence (AI) lens by Dr. Elizabeth A. Barnes from Colorado State University. We thank both the speakers for their time and very interesting presentations.
