Abstract: The objectives and purposes of most professional, technical and institutional organizations made up of people interested in weather modification as a tool in North American water resources management are discussed in this paper. The organizations mentioned include: the World Meteorological Organization, Mexico Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources, North American Interstate Weather Modification Council, Weather Modification Association, American Meteorological Society, and the American Society of Civil Engineers. Most of these organizations are involved in distribution of technical information to other types of groups throughout the world. The North American Interstate Weather Modification Council and the World Meteorological Organization are potential user group organizations that have been designed to solve institutional problems which occur across interstate, interbasin, and/or international boundaries.
