AMS 2019 Summer Community Meeting

The AMS Summer Community Meeting is a special time during the year when professionals from academia, industry, and government (i.e., the Enterprise) come together to discuss broader, strategic priorities, identify opportunities to collaborate, and share points of view on pressing topics.  A key focus is always on how new science and technology innovations can be leveraged by the Enterprise to continue enhancing forecasts for users globally as well as how to improve communication of forecasts in our rapidly changing world!


We are excited to be in Albany, NY at the University at Albany with sessions scheduled on August 13 and August 14!


As always, we will be exploring opportunities to accelerate growth of the Weather Enterprise and importantly how we can each contribute through enhanced collaboration! Additionally, though a separate event, the NWS will hold their bi-annual Partner’s Meeting on August 15.  The Partners Meeting offers a chance to learn more about the current status and future plans for NWS products and services.


Mark your calendar for this important series of meetings in August in Albany – we hope to see you there!  For additional information, please contact Jonathan Porter, BEC Chair at jonathan.porter@accuweather.com.
