  • IAU- Pro-Am WG Survey de asociaciones amateur en America Latina y Caribe

Estimados/as/es

En la reunión de abril del Comité Ejecutivo de la IAU-EC105, el CE acordó establecer un nuevo Grupo de Trabajo para fomentar las futuras relaciones profesionales-aficionados entre los astrónomos profesionales miembros de la IAU y la gran comunidad de astrónomos aficionados en todo el mundo. Esta iniciativa está de acuerdo con los objetivos del Plan Estratégico de la IAU, 2020-30, y también es consistente con los propósitos de la Oficina de la IAU para la Difusiøn de la Astronomía en Tokio.
Este comité está liderado por John Hearnshaw (Nueva Zelanda) y ya ha mantenido una primera reunión de organización y próximamente otras para avanzar en los objetivos.
El propósito de este mensaje es invitarlos a completar el siguiente frormulario que intenta crear las bases para registrar formalmente las Asociaciones Amateur y establecer contacto con ellas.

Muchas gracias por su cooperación!
Un saludo cordial
