June 2021 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).

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many events are going virtual as organizations adapt to the new normal. We hope you take advantage of the increased accessibility of virtual events. 

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.
