Boards and Committees
Some committees and boards have specific requirements of those who serve on them (for example, one must be a CCM to serve on the Board of Certified Consulting Meteorologists). If you want to learn more about a service on a particular committee or board, you can either contact the chair (using the listing of committee and board members and their contact information) or the commissioner of the commission in which that committee or board resides.

- Commission on the Weather, Water, and Climate Enterprise
- Planning Commission
- Publications Commission (learn how to Get Involved with AMS Journals)
