Abstract: In 2009, the Astronomical Society of the Pacific celebrates 120 years of serving the cause of astronomy, with a membership of professional and amateur astronomers, educators, and interested public; professional and popular publications; and increasingly, a variety of education and professional development programs and dissemination networks serving our various constituencies. As the Society begins a new strategic planning phase and looks forward to the next 120 years of service, with a re-articulated mission (“Advancing science literacy through engagement in astronomy”) and a continuing commitment to science, education and outreach, in which direction(s) shall it head? The presenter will offer a few thoughts and conference participants will be surveyed for theirs in their role as continuing or newly minted ASP members. Outcomes: The audience will gain insight into ASP’s future planning and will be surveyed for their input in the process.
