Renew Your AAS Membership Today!

Monday, October 13, 2014 - 17:05

With no dues increase and a "stellar" lineup of benefits, there isn't a better time than now to renew your commitment to the AAS.

The Society emailed members in early September announcing the start of membership renewal season, and many took notice. Online renewals are arriving at a steady pace. If you have already paid your dues, thanks for your continued support.

Later this month we will mail paper reminders to members who haven't renewed online yet. To help reduce costs and the Society's carbon footprint, we encourage you to renew online today for fast, easy self-service. Simply log in to pay your dues, to confirm or update your journal subscriptions and Division memberships, and to lock in savings for 2016 by renewing for two years at the current rate. (Note: That last option isn't available to junior members, who instead get two years for the price of one — currently $77 —when first joining the Society, then renew annually thereafter.)

Renew before 31 December to maintain your benefits and receive additional savings: the AAS will extend a one-time 15% discount off your portion of the author charges for one paper published in the Astronomical Journal, the Astrophysical Journal, ApJ Letters, or ApJ Supplement. Eligible members can double their savings: if you renew by 31 December for two years, you will receive the 15% author discount on one paper each in 2015 and 2016.

The Society has much planned for 2015 — including the 225th meeting of the AAS in Seattle in January and the 29th General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union (IAU), which we're hosting in Honolulu in August — so we know you won't want to miss out on the latest science, member communications, and career and networking opportunities. Supporting the AAS is supporting your discipline. Renew today!

If you have any questions about your dues or benefits, or need assistance when logging in, please contact the membership team by email at or by phone at 202-328-2010. Thank you!
