About Us

Welcome!

Thank you for visiting our page, we hope that you will find the information here to be useful and beneficial to your experience as a member of AOS. This website was started in 2015 after the Board of Directors approved a proposal for the position of Graduate Student Liaison to the Board and appointed a graduate student liaison to spearhead a new program of outreach, community-building, and support for AOS graduate students and recent alumni. Although the program is in its initial stages, it is expected to expand in the next few years to include more graduate students in leadership positions. In the meantime, we are happy to introduce your current student leaders–if you have questions, comments, or suggestions, they are the ones to talk to!   

We are currently looking for motivated graduate student volunteers to join our team!
