1. 2004 AAS MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL INVOICES ARE IN THE MAIL
Please renew upon receipt to avoid interruptions in services/subscriptions and the unnecessary issuance of second invoices.

2. NSF SPONSORED GROUND-BASED ASTRONOMY SET FOR 7 & 8 OCTOBER IN DC
The public is invited to participate in a National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsored symposium 7 & 8 October 2003, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. "The Universe from the Ground Up --Ground-based Astronomy in the 21st Century" will host a wide-array of prominent scientists from around the country, as well as over a dozen astronomical organizations exhibiting tools and capabilities. It's a stellar (pun intended) opportunity for the public to engage real scientists about this wondrous field of discovery.
Two of the symposium presentations will be web cast and LIVE streaming audio of all the presentations can be heard over the Internet. Go to www.nsf.gov/od/lpa/events/ground_astro to tune in or register to attend.

7. ERROR IN PP BRIEF 6
In the Public Policy Brief sent recently to all US AAS members, a small mixup in numbers has been found. Specifically, in the operating plan budget for FY 2003 for the NSF Astronomy division the Facilities budget number (109.2 M) and the Astronomy Research and Instrumentation numbers were accidentally reversed. We apologize for this error. For updated information on public policy issues, please visit the AAS Public Policy Webpage at www.aas.org/policy or simply click on Public Policy from the AAS Homepage.
