Abstract: The International Year of Astronomy (IYA) has fostered significant grass-roots efforts on the part of the EPO, science, and amateur communities in spite of paralleling the worst economic crisis in decades. Is it over on December 31? Did we “win?” What have we learned from IYA and other international years? Can we keep the momentum going? How do we keep the momentum going? How do we assess the effort and the results? What worked and what didn’t? How do we keep astronomy education and outreach relevant in an age of foreclosures and job layoffs? WWGD? (“What would Galileo do?”) Join the discussion as we look forward.
