Overview of AMS Commission on the Weather and Climate Enterprise:  Overview of AMS Commission on the Weather and Climate Enterprise Slide2:  NRC Committee Formed in 2001 at the request of NOAA/NWS Decades of evolving policy regarding weather services have produced two results for the U.S. 1. Scope and diversity of services second to none 2. Overlapping roles and occasional friction between NWS and private service providers. Study conclusions The NRC Committee judged this friction to be an acceptable price to pay for excellent weather services, but also concluded that it could be ameliorated. Slide3:  Report Contained 11 recommendations Recommendation 3 The NWS and relevant academic, state, and private organizations should seek a neutral host, such as the American Meteorological Society, to provide a periodic dedicated venue for the weather enterprise as a whole to discuss issues related to the public-private partnership. Slide4:  A New Commission For The American Meteorological Society Approved Guidelines :  Guidelines The Commission provides venues for enterprise participants to meet and discuss issues of importance to the enterprise. All findings and reports resulting from Commission activities are directed to the AMS Council. The Commission and its activities facilitate dialogue between enterprise participants. Commission activities operate within the overall mission of the American Meteorological Society as a scientific and professional society. Council Approved (Sep 05) Terms of Reference for Weather and Climate Enterprise Commission:  Council Approved (Sep 05) Terms of Reference for Weather and Climate Enterprise Commission Membership : A Commissioner (three-year term on rotating basis from each sector) The Chairpersons of the constituent Committees/Boards Special Responsibilities and Authority: To develop and implement programs that address the needs and concerns of all sectors of the weather and climate enterprise; promote a sense of community among government entities, private sector organizations, and universities; foster synergistic linkages between and among the sectors; entrain and educate user communities on the value of weather and climate information; and provide appropriate venues and opportunities for communications that foster frank, open, and balanced discussions of points of contention and concern. Venues & Outreach:  Venues andamp; Outreach Venues for the topic discussions will have a variety of formats- Workshops Special Symposia Conference Sessions Web casts Outreach activities to help identify user needs and promote the capabilities of the meteorological community include- Sponsoring corporate fora Promoting support andamp; services to weather sensitive industries Advertising at tradeshows Fostering favorable policies andamp; procedures Establishing a more prominent web presence for internal communication within the community on topics of interest, outcome of workshops, and other Commission activities. Venues & Outreach:  Venues andamp; Outreach www.ametsoc.org AMS Commission on theWeather and Climate Enterprise:  AMS Commission on the Weather and Climate Enterprise Fair Weather report recommendation 3: The NWS and relevant academic, state, and private organizations should seek a neutral host, such as the American Meteorological Society, to provide a periodic dedicated venue for the weather enterprise as a whole to discuss issues related to the public-private partnership. The Enterprise Commission will go well beyond the Fair Weather recommendation, to consider relevant issues throughout the enterprise and not just those associated with the NWS. Slide10:  The National Weather and Climate Enterprise The Weather and Climate Enterprise:  The Weather and Climate Enterprise The nation’s weather and climate enterprise is conducted by many parties who provide information to many who use this information. For convenience in exposition, the providers are typically grouped into three sectors – government, private sector, and the academic community – although the enterprise as a whole includes non-governmental organizations, international organizations, private citizens, and others. Each of the three provider 'sectors' is quite diverse: Government includes federal agencies (both civilian and military), as well as agencies at the state and local level. The private sector includes weather companies, practitioners working for private companies or as consultants, broadcasters, risk managers, and others. The academic sector includes both private and public educational institutions and specially chartered research organizations of various types. The community is also diverse on the user side, including a broad range of weather sensitive economic sectors (energy, agriculture, and transportation, to name three) as well as private citizens. In recognition of the breadth and diversity of these communities of providers and users of weather and climate information the use of the term 'weather and climate enterprise' encompasses all participants Slide12:  A New Commission For The American Meteorological Society Approved Commission Steering Committee:  Commission Steering Committee Will consist of community leaders and the leaders of groups representing users of meteorological information plus members at large, meeting twice yearly Purpose of the CSC is to provide a forum for identification and discussion of issues of interest or concern to the meteorological community as a whole Will normally refer items requiring further action to one of the boards of the Commission Members of the AMS Weather and Climate Enterprise Commission Steering Committee as of 1/28/06:  Members of the AMS Weather and Climate Enterprise Commission Steering Committee as of 1/28/06 Voting members by position (4) George Frederick, CSC Chair, WCEC Commissioner Bill Mahoney, BEED Chair Terry Tarbell, BEP Chair Matt Parker, CCM, BEC Chair Senior members (voting) from the provider community (7) Dr. Joel Myers, President and Founder of Accuweather BGen DL Johnson, Director, NWS TBD (Govt.)
