The Board On Enterprise Communication (BEC) will provide appropriate venues to bring together the meteorological community to learn about, discuss, and provide input concerning issues of a short-term nature and of immediate interest to the community.
Venues may take a wide variety of formats, including workshops, web casts, special symposia, and conference sessions, depending on the nature and time-sensitivity of the topic to be discussed.
The BEC will also conduct Outreach activities to help identify user needs and promote the capabilities of the meteorological community. Some of the ways the BEC will accomplish this is by sponsoring corporate fora, promoting support and services to weather sensitive industries, advertising at tradeshows, and fostering favorable policies and procedures.
Board On Enterprise Communication Committees
The BEC is comprised of several committees and more are being added each year. There is an increasing demand for our weather enterprise to discuss issues related to the public-private partnerships and that's the bridge building that BEC provides.
Climate Services Committee (CCS)
The members of the CCS should represent the three main sectors of the AMS membership: academic, government, and private sector. Also, members from the broad user community should be considered for membership. Consideration should also be given to ensuring broad geographic representation. Members will generally serve three-year terms, and will be nominated by the BEC and CCS Chairs for approval through the normal AMS process. In some cases, an extension may be granted to a member to ensure that sufficient continuity of the CCS is maintained between successive years. One or two BEC members will be appointed by the BEC Chair and approved by the Weather and Climate Enterprise Commissioner to serve as the CCS Chair or Co-chairs.
Ad Hoc Committee On Uncertainty in Forecasts (ACUF)
Ad Hoc Planning Committee for the AMS Annual Community Meeting
"From communicating the science and technology needs of the weather and climate enterprise to communicating hazard messages to the public, communication has never been more at the forefront of our community. The Board on Enterprise Communication (BEC) provides an exciting opportunity to explore the many communication issues that our community faces, and take the necessary steps to promote, educate, or research these issues. With members from all different institutional backgrounds, the BEC brings fresh perspective and diverse ideas in hopes to take a closer look at an issue. My personal goal is to share my knowledge as a communication researcher, and gain valuable insights into the intricacies of the weather and climate enterprise."
"The best part of serving is working with colleagues, and meeting new and energetic people who share interests and provide new perspectives on activities."
