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.
AAVSO Council Member, John Martin, gave a Tuesday morning workshop on "Spectroscopy with Small Telescopes," and AAVSO Assistant Director, Aaron Price, gave a Tuesday afternoon workshop on "Using the Photometry Analysis Package VPHOT."
Sky and Telescope also wrote a blog post on the cooperation between amateurs and professionals demonstrated at the meeting!
Thank you to those of you who attended this meeting!
