The Communication and Outreach Working Group’s role is to enable efficient and effective communications
within and outside of the Unified Forecast System Community. Implicit in this mission is the effort to grow
and support the UFS Community itself. We achieve this primarily by executing the UFS Communications and Outreach Plan.
The plan outlines four major goals:

  • GOAL 1: Establish, maintain, monitor, and assess a range of channels that promote multidirectional communication and convey content related to the UFS.
  • GOAL 2: Establish guidelines and processes that result in improvements in content quality and consistency.
  • GOAL 3: Promote and enable collaborative development and integrated decision making through open access to information and resources.
  • GOAL 4: Create and sustain an identity through branding for the UFS, working through and with NOAA Communications and other parallel offices in partner organizations.
