2013 Spring Meeting Site Proposals Wanted - Due March 1st!

The AAVSO is accepting proposals to host our 2013 "spring" meeting. Typically these meetings are held away from our HQ in Cambridge, MA sometime in the months of April-July. For the first time, we are experimenting with the process of accepting open suggestions and bids for the location of our next unplanned meeting (2012 will be in Big Bear, CA).

101st Spring Meeting of the AAVSO

The AAVSO held its 101st Spring Meeting in Big Bear, CA on May 22-24, 2012. This was a joint meeting with the Society of Astronomical Sciences (SAS). (We had a very well attended joint meeting with SAS in 2009 at this same location.)  As before, SAS handled the registration and paper submissions for this meeting.  Both AAVSO members and SAS members received the member registration rate.
