We're inviting amateur astronomers and other interested members of the public to drop in to our 222nd meeting in Indianapolis. Weather permitting, we'll also hold a public star party with the Indiana Astronomical Society.
AAS 222nd Meeting - 02-06 June 2013 Indiana Convention Center, Indianapolis, IN
You may think you belong to the AAS, but it's really the other way around: the Society belongs to you. That's why you should come to the Annual Members Meeting in Indianapolis, on Wednesday afternoon, 5 June, to hear reports from our leaders and to raise and comment on issues of concern to you. Or you can just come for the free drinks and snacks!
Amateur astronomers and other interested members of the public are invited to drop in for a day at the 222nd meeting of the AAS in Indianapolis, Indiana. A special one-day registration rate of just $50 admits you to all scientific sessions, public-policy discussions, and the exhibit hall.
The Indy 500 happens twice this year: once in late May, when the world's elite auto racers converge on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and again a week later, when more than 500 astronomers, educators, journalists, and guests converge on downtown Indianapolis for the 222nd meeting of the American Astronomical Society, 2-6 June 2013, at the Indiana Convention Center, 100 S. Capitol Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46225.
We are grateful to the following Indianapolis businesses who have donated gift certificates and discounts for our meeting participants. Make sure you visit their businesses while in Indy!

The Long Beach meeting is underway as I write this column (during a break between sessions). Roughly 2500 people attended the meeting and judging by the hoarse voices and happy grins mid-week, most valued the opportunity to speak with and hang-out with their colleagues. Organizing a meeting of this size and logistical complexity is not easy and takes real professionals working both on site and for years (literally) ahead of time to pull it off.
Deadlines for abstract submissions have been reached for the 222nd Meeting. Please look for the 223rd Meeting abstract submissions to open in August 2013.
