2020 AAS Membership Renew

There is so much going on in the AAS community for the remainder of 2019 and into 2020. We believe you'll want to maintain your connection in the coming year. AAS leaders and staff are working hard to launch new benefits and improve existing programs designed to increase the value of your membership, including these:

  • a new aas.org website, featuring a membership directory with enhanced search parameters.
  • not-to-miss meetings in Honolulu, Hawaii, and Madison, Wisconsin. When submitting abstracts for the upcoming winter meeting, look for expanded iPoster-Plus (short talk with an iPoster) opportunities and take advantage of this multimedia presentation format to share your science.
  • a new publishing home for your solar system and exoplanetary research — The Planetary Science Journal joins the Society's Astronomical Journal and Astrophysical Journal family of peer-reviewed publications.
  • subscriptions to Sky & Telescope magazine at a special discount!


We also encourage you to make tax-deductible contributions during the 2020 membership renewal campaign. When renewing online, you can do this in two ways: (1) Round up with a gift to the AAS General Fund — for instance, check the box to donate $3 to round up those Full Member dues to a tidy $200 when reviewing your current membership products; or (2) Give to the AAS and/or Division program of your choice by adding these contributions to your card by clicking on the "Donate Now" button or tab during the checkout process. Your support of our prize and grant programs is invaluable!

Renew today! Get this done now, and you'll be set for next year. No more mailings, and no more emails asking you to renew your commitment to the astronomical sciences. Why put it off?

If you have questions about your benefits or need assistance with your login or renewal, please email the membership team or call us at (202) 328-2010.
