The AAS is happy to announce its second annual report in a new format, published electronically apart from the BAAS. The 2010 Annual Report is available at http://aas.org/publications/annual_report.
For future years, the report will be available in July each year for the year prior. This is due to needing Council approval of the audit report for the prior year before we include the financial results in the annual report. Comments or questions about the annual report are welcome firstname.lastname@example.org.
A summary of AAS activities is published each August.
