AAVSO Fiscal Year Change?

  This probably qualifies as a simple question, but does the AAVSO still use the October 1 to September 30 period of time as the Fiscal Year, or do I remember reading that this changed recently? I'm only asking because in the past I used to record my estimates from the start of October until the end of September the following year to keep track of them. Thanks in advance!

Hi Paul,

The AAVSO corporate fiscal year is from October 1 through September 30.  We've talked about changing it to the calendar year, but there is no strong reason to go through the complication.  All observer totals are fiscal year based, so your awards will be based on your totals as of September 30.

However, we changed the membership year to be the calendar year as that is easier to maintain at HQ, and simpler for members and libraries to remember.
