Get Your Copy of the AAS 2012 Annual Report

Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 20:25

The American Astronomical Society’s annual report for calendar year 2012 is now available for downloading as a 1.3-megabyte PDF file. To read and/or print it, you'll need a PDF reader, such as the free Adobe Reader, which is available for all common computer platforms.

Beginning with the 2009 edition, the AAS annual report is published separately from the Bulletin of the AAS, as directed by the Publications Board, and focuses on summarizing the activities of the Society instead of presenting a comprehensive reporting of them all. We hope this will make the report more readable and more widely read.

2012 annual report contents:

  • President’s Message
  • Executive Officer’s Message
  • Financial Report
  • Membership
  • Charitable Donors
  • Publishing
  • Public Policy
  • AAS/Division Meetings
  • Divisions, Committees & Working Groups
  • Education & Outreach
  • Press & Media
  • Prize Winners
  • Member Deaths

The annual report for a given year is not available until the second half of the following year, because we need Council approval of the audit report before we can publish our financial data, and each year's audit report isn't available for the Council's consideration until the next summer meeting.

If you have questions or comments about the AAS annual report, please direct them to the Executive Office.
