Wanted: Deadlines & Sponsors for the 2017 AAS Wall Calendar
One of the many benefits of membership in the AAS is the annual AAS Wall Calendar. It is provided free to all members and makes an attractive addition to any office. The calendar highlights important astronomical events month by month, including AAS and Division meetings, proposal and grant deadlines, solar and lunar eclipses, equinoxes and solstices, meteor showers, Moon phases, and more. Produced in standard format, the calendar measures 12 x 9 inches closed, 12 x 18 inches open.
Each month of the AAS Wall Calendar affords an opportunity for sponsorship by an observatory or other astronomy-related organization, department, mission, or project. Sponsors are featured with a full-page photo or illustration of their choosing, one or more logos, and a short block of text including a caption and credit. Sponsorship of the AAS Wall Calendar is a great way to show your support for the astronomical community and to ensure that your project, mission, or institution is recognized by astronomers all across North America.
Space is provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Anyone interested in sponsoring a month in the 2017 AAS Wall Calendar should email Crystal Tinch for more information and pricing. Deadline: 1 September 2016.
Dates & Deadlines
The AAS relies on meeting organizers, telescope-allocation committees, funding agencies, foundations, and others to inform us of key dates and deadlines for inclusion in the AAS Wall Calendar. Every year we're asked why a particular proposal deadline or other important event of widespread interest to AAS members wasn't listed in the calendar, and the answer is always the same: "Because nobody told us about it." Don't let this happen to you! Please forward any key dates and deadlines for the 2017 AAS Wall Calendar to Crystal Tinch as soon as possible. Deadline: 1 September 2016.
