The AAVSO has recently formed a a telescope allocation committee (TAC) to review proposals for AAVSOnet observing time. After reviewing a few proposals, it became clear that proposers needed guidance on how to write proposals that allow the TAC to do its job effectively. This document is an attempt to provide that guidance. If you are new to CCD observing or lack experience writing an observing proposal, the TAC will be happy to assist you in preparing a proposal or to suggest a mentor that can help you.
