Purpose and Goals

The purpose of the Board on Enterprise Economic Development (BEED) is to promote growth in the economic base of the weather and climate enterprise by outreach to user communities. The BEED addresses this goal in several ways including; a) organizing the annual AMS Users Forum, which is held during the Annual Meeting, b) organizing the AMS Public-Private Partnership Forum (formerly known as the AMS Corporate Forum), c) establishing and supporting standing committees representing specific economic and/or user sectors (e.g., transportation, energy, etc.), and by identifying and participating in cross disciplinary and cross sector workshops, conferences, and symposia as a way to engage user groups that may be underserved by the weather and climate enterprise or unaware of our capabilities.
