Strategic Assembly

The Strategic Assembly is responsible for the Society's long-term strategic direction. Composed of the Board of Trustees, the Chairs of our Divisions, and the Chairs of our Committees, the Strategic Assembly is positioned to drive our strategic planning to new levels of impact.

Three key tasks of the Strategic Assembly are:

  • establish and update over time the AAS strategic plan;
  • monitor progress of the Society toward specific goals included in the strategic plan;
  • review the projects and programs of the Society to ensure they are aligned with and supportive of our strategic goals and mission.
