AMS Policy Forum

Participate in the American Meteorological Society (AMS) Policy Program’s Policy Forum!

AMS Policy Forum hosts open discussions on policy topics relevant to the weather, water, and climate community. The AMS Policy Program hopes to create a platform for members of the community to learn about and engage with the policy process.

Ultimately, we hope that the discussions on AMS Policy Forum will provide insights to the weather, water, and climate community; decision makers in the Executive and Legislative branches; members of the media; and the public.

We welcome and encourage the free expression of ideas on AMS Policy Forum. Responses may be moderated and, at times, excluded from the discussion if they lack in topical relevance, civility, or a basis in fact.

Views expressed are those of the individual. Responses do not speak on behalf of the American Meteorological Society, its members, or the AMS Policy Program.

Advancing Weather, Water, and Climate Priorities

Recently, AMS approved a statement on Weather, Water, and Climate Priorities. The statement provides an overarching vision and framework for advancing our science and services. We're asking you to contribute concrete steps that can help make this a reality.
