The AAS will permit use of the mailing list by commercial and non-commercial organizations. Details of products or events must be submitted and judged to be of potential interest to a significant fraction of the membership. Authorization is given for one-time use of the list on each occasion. A small fee is charged to cover handling. The AAS mailing list is never sold to firms unrelated to astronomy or science.
The AAS does not distribute the email addresses of its members for any purpose. If a notice is deemed to be of sufficient interest and urgency to warrant email distribution, the AAS will distribute it as part of our regular Electronic Announcement Series. Commercial advertising will not be distributed.
