Put yourself in the picture: the 2023 AMS Summer Policy Colloquium.

Do you want to put your science to work? See it contribute to a better world? Then you want to be as disciplined in your approach to the policy process as you are to your research and services. 

The Summer Policy Colloquium is an intensive immersion in policy for Earth and environmental system scientists and professionals from academia, government, and the private sector. Colloquium participants meet with congressional staff, members of congress, leading officials from the executive branch, and prominent policy experts. Legislative exercises and policy simulations provide additional windows into the interplay of policy, politics, and procedure in the United States Federal policy process.

The Summer Policy Colloquium is a career-shaping experience. Alumni have gone on to serve in crucial roles for the nation and the scientific community such as working in congress and at the highest levels of leadership in the National Weather Service, the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), the National Science Foundation, and the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP), to name only a few.

The agenda for 2023 is in development but it will be similar to this agenda from 2022.
