September 2019 Events in Astronomical Science Policy

Kelsie Krafton American Astronomical Society (AAS)

This is the monthly event roundup for the AAS Policy Blog, in which we share a list of upcoming astronomical science policy events. Examples include congressional hearings, advisory committee meetings, Capitol Hill briefings, policy forums, think tank symposia, networking opportunities, and/or lectures. Most of these events are public and occur here in Washington, DC. Many are also live streamed. I will try to note in the event listing if advance registration for in-person attendance is required (either for security or capacity reasons). If an event is on this calendar, someone from the AAS Public Policy team will likely be in attendance, so come say hello!

Other relevant policy event calendars:

Some events are announced with less than a month’s advance notice, and we will update this post whenever we have something new to add. Please email us if you have a correction or an event that you think should be added to this list.
