AAS Executive Office

The AAS Executive Office is located on the eighth floor of 1667 K Street NW in Washington, DC. The building is at the intersection of K Street NW and 17th Street NW, across from Farragut Square.

Nearly all AAS staff members, with the exception of the journal editors and staff for the Astronomical Journal and Astrophysical Journal publications, work in the DC office. The Press Officer, the Education & Outreach Coordinator, and the Director of Publishing currently work from home, the former in Watertown, Massachusetts, and the latter two in Tucson, Arizona.

AAS members are welcome to visit the Executive Office at any time and should contact us to arrange a visit. Regular visitors include AAS officers, Division officers, members attending Congressional Visits Day, and members who help sort meeting abstracts. Members may rent the small conference room.

The AAS has always rented office space and has never owned its own building. Former landlords include the American Geophysical Union, AURA, Princeton, and the Optical Society of America. Further historical details on the Executive Office were published in the centennial book, The American Astronomical Society's First Century.
