Results of the 2018 AAS Election

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 - 09:40

Voting in the AAS election of officers and trustees for terms beginning in 2018 closed on 31 January. Of the 7,397 members eligible to cast ballots, 1,181 members (16%) voted. If you were one of these voters, thank you! If not, we hope you’ll exercise your right to vote in future elections. Our officers and trustees help decide the Society's direction and goals. The best way to ensure that your voice is heard is to participate in Society elections.

Here are this year’s winners; all will take office this summer, except for the newly elected member of the Nominating Committee, whose term begins immediately:

Joan Schmelz
Vice-President
Tereasa Brainerd
At-Large Trustee
Thomas J. Maccarone
USNC-IAU
Jeremy J. Drake
Nominating Committee

We are grateful to all of the AAS members who agreed to stand for election, and we congratulate our new officers and trustees. We look forward to benefiting from their wisdom and energy in the years ahead!
