Application for admission to the AAS, in any category of membership, requires nomination by Full Members of the American Astronomical Society.
Full Membership is open to any person deemed capable of preparing an acceptable scientific paper on some subject of astronomy or related branch of science. Supporting evidence for nomination to Full Membership should include at least one of the following:
The Astronomical Journal, Astrophysical Journal, Astrophysical Journal Letters and Astrophysical Journal Supplement are all included.
The AAS will permit use of the mailing list by commercial and non-commercial organizations. Details of products or events must be submitted and judged to be of potential interest to a significant fraction of the membership. Authorization is given for one-time use of the list on each occasion. A small fee is charged to cover handling. The AAS mailing list is never sold to firms unrelated to astronomy or science.
The AAS is primarily a society of researchers in astronomy and it wishes to assure that the members meet minimum qualifications in the area. Nomination by two Full Members of the AAS who are familiar with the qualifications of the nominee is one way of achieving this goal.

Individual memberships are available to those actively involved in astronomy or a related branch of science. Corporations and other entities desirous of encouraging the work of the Society should join as a Corporate Member.
