2021 AMS Washington Forum Virtual Meeting

2021 AMS Washington Forum Virtual Meeting

26–29 October 2021

Registration will be open in February 2021. 

**The 2021 AMS Washington Forum will take place in a virtual format. As we are not able to meet in person as planned, we have changed the format of conference to one that is conducive to virtual learning and collaboration. This event will still provide an important platform to examine public policy issues across the weather, water, and climate sciences and will feature several leadership keynotes. We hope that by eliminating travel costs and setting registration rates as low as possible, we can 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.**

Important Dates

Pre-Registration Deadline: 05 April 2021
No Registration Refund After: 12 April 2021
