Roster of AAS Agents

Based on the precinct-captain model of election campaigns, the AAS Agents program is designed to improve communication between the Society and its members and to enhance the profile of the AAS in the community. Learn more.

If your institution isn't on this list, i.e., doesn't already have an AAS Agent, please consider volunteering to serve in this important capacity or asking an agent at a nearby or closely-related institution if they can serve as your institution's agent. To volunteer, email the Society's membership team and let us know that you're interested in becoming an AAS Agent.

Jason Wright (Pennsylvania State University) is the current Lead Agent; the Deputy Lead Agent is Stephen C. Unwin (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory).
