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. Although the report will be printed in limited quantity, we expect most AAS members to download it here in digital format. The report is an Adobe 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.
The annual report will be available in August each year for the year prior, e.g., the 2011 report will appear in August 2012. This is because we need Council approval of the audit report for the prior year 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.
