Purpose of the Annual Summer Community Meetings

The American Meteorological Society, its Commission on the Weather and Climate Enterprise, and its Board on Enterprise Communication are proud to work with AMS Community members from all sectors (public, private, and academic), on a continuing basis, to advance the ability of the weather, water, and climate Community to meet our nation's, and the world's demand for products and services relating to weather, water, climate, and other closely allied fields.
