MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR:  AAS ELECTIONS UNDERWAY--PLEASE VOTE!
 
Dear Colleagues:
As the largest division within the AAS, the DPS has a strong interest 
in the composition of the AAS Executive Committee. I urge all of you 
to vote in this year's AAS election. You may view the slate of 
candidates and their personal statements on-line when you login to 
the AAS site http://www.aas.org. The deadline is 31 January 2006, 
so please don't delay.
 
Many thanks.
 
Dick French
DPS Chair
