Other Society Information:

The membership of the EMS consists of national or regional meteorological societies. The EMS is strongly supported by Associate Members, organisations with an interest in the aims of the EMS.

The main activity of the EMS is the preparation of the EMS Annual Meetings: European Conference for Applied Meteorology and Climatology. View past and upcoming meetings here.

In 2011 the EMS adopted the Code of Practice as guidelines for individuals of the meteorological community on how to communicate honestly and reliably, with the general public, including the media, on issues of meteorology and in particular on complex or controversial issues such as climate change.
