The American Astronomical Society (AAS) Meetings have grown considerably over the past ten years. In order to keep pace with this growth, it is important to learn from past experiences, to keep abreast of changes in the meetings and hospitality industries, and to maintain a high level of organization. The success of the AAS Meetings reflects the Society’s ability to accomplish these goals.
