What's New

AMS Election Results are in. Thank you for voting!

The AMS Policy Program has launched a new website called the AMS Policy Forum! We invite all members of the weather, water, and climate community to share their experiences; the first survey, now posted, solicits feedback on experiences of how the Research to Operations (R2O) process works within the community. Results of this survey and others in the future will be available to decision makers in the Executive and Legislative branches. We hope to provide insights on important issues for the community.
