Society Policies

The AAS is moving forward with a change in governance structure and function that will result in many matters previously documented in the Society’s Bylaws migrating to Policies. This change is still in progress, and the policies established by the Board of Trustees will be added to this page in the near future.

Policies on AAS Meetings

Meeting Site Selection

  • In the absence of a nationwide anti-discrimination law covering sexual orientation and gender expression, it is the policy of the AAS to locate its meetings in cities where all LGBTQIA attendees are welcomed and accommodated. If laws change after contracts are signed, the AAS will do everything that it can to enable those discriminated against to participate fully in the meeting.
