The American Meteorological Society, founded in 1919, is the preeminent scientific and professional organization for scientists and practitioners in the atmospheric sciences and related oceanic and hydrologic sciences. With a membership of more than 13,000 professionals, students, and weather enthusiasts, the AMS publishes nine atmospheric and related oceanic and hydrologic journals, sponsors more than 12 conferences annually, and offers numerous programs and services. Over 175 companies and institutions have demonstrated their support of the Society and their commitment to the future of the atmospheric and related oceanic and hydrologic sciences by becoming an AMS Corporation and Institutional Member (CIM).

Corporation and Institutional Membership provides organizations with a host of benefits developed to suit their specific needs. In addition to tangible benefits such as reduced journal subscription rates and discounts on advertising opportunities, membership in the Society enhances corporate and academic recognition within the scientific community. The four levels of AMS Corporation and Institutional Membership have been designed to meet the unique technical and marketing needs of all organizations.
