The new process to identify and elect ASP Directors contains a critical new element – the nomination of candidates by ASP members.  We will formally request your nominations in the Spring.  Please be thinking about potential nominees.  We are looking for people with a deep love of astronomy who want to share that love with others – whether it be professionals, amateurs, educators, students or the general public.

Nominees need to strongly support our mission of advancing both the science of astronomy and science literacy using astronomy. They also need to be willing to commit their personal time and efforts by becoming active Board members. We are looking for astronomy advocates from various backgrounds including professional astronomers, college and secondary school teaching, educational program development, public outreach and science education, as well as those who have expertise in finance, business management, fundraising, social media, marketing communications, and applicable technologies.

This is an exciting time of growth with our new Executive Director, Linda Shore, leading the organization.  Thanks for your continuing support of ASP!

Gordon Myers
ASP Board President
