Spring is here and that means it’s time to start work on the 2022 Membership Directory. This work begins with you! We kindly ask that you review your information and set your listing and mailing preferences. New this year: add your pronouns to your listing! Updates are due by Monday, 2 May.

The first step: go to my.aas.org and log in with your AAS username and password, then click on My Account along the top navigation bar. You’ll see several tabs. For Directory updating purposes, you’ll need the About Me and My Preferences tabs.

The next step: review your name, institution, address, phone number, and email on your About Me tab. These fields are in three different boxes on the page; click the pencil icon in the upper-right corner of each box to make your edits. Then click the orange Save button.

  • Review your My Institution box. Your institution will be the second line in your directory listing. Please do not add your institution to the Addresses: Directory tab. Doing so will print your institution twice in the Directory and on mailed items.
  • You can update your address, phone, and email in the Addresses: Directory and Home box. Make sure you have an email address entered in your Directory Address fields. The information listed here is critical to retrieving your online credentials should you forget your username or password.
  • Review your name in the Contact Information box to the left of the My Institution box. Please contact the AAS membership team if you need to update your last name.

Pronouns are making their debut in both the print and online directories. Please indicate your Pronouns in the Demographic Information box.

The final step: review your mailing and directory listing options on your My Preferences tab. Don’t wish to receive the print directory in the mail? Make your edit in the Mailed Print Items section. Don’t care to be listed in the print directory? See AAS Directory Listings: include my name in the… section to change your preference. Be sure to click on the pencil icon and save your changes.
