26–28 October 2020
**The 2020 AMS Washington Forum took place in a virtual format. As we were not able to meet in person as planned, we had changed the format of conference to one that is conducive to virtual learning and collaboration. This event still provided an important platform to examine public policy issues across the weather, water, and climate sciences and featured several leadership keynotes. We hoped that by eliminating travel costs and setting registration rates as low as possible, we could maximize participation by those interested in learning more about how weather, water, and climate information can help support risk management across the public and private sectors.**
Connecting Science and Technology with Business and Public Policy
This much-anticipated event provided an important platform to examine public policy issues across the weather, water, and climate sciences. We had several leadership keynotes.
This meeting was open for anyone interested in learning more about how weather, water, and climate information can help support risk management across the public and private sectors. This included agencies and companies whose operations and planning are reliant on environmental factors.
The AMS Washington Forum was organized by the AMS Board on Enterprise Economic Development (BEED), a part of the AMS Commission on the Weather, Water, and Climate Enterprise (CWWCE).
