Board on Enterprise Strategic Topics

  • news and announcements, Reports and Studies

The primary purpose of the BEST is to help determine and advance collaboration on strategic initiatives of the weather, water, and climate enterprise. The BEST will consider topics for enhanced collaboration derived from CWWCE activities or from suggestions submitted by members of the community.  This will be a continuous process of information exchange.  Those topics can be addressed through various mechanisms, not limited to, the establishment of committees, the creation of white papers, panel discussions, or town halls in collaboration with the Annual Symposium on the Weather and Climate Enterprise.  In addition, the BEST Chair(s) and committees in partnership with the relevant parties across the CWWCE will organize the Symposium on the Weather and Climate Enterprise at the AMS Annual Meeting each year.
