The Western Amateur Astronomers (WAA) was formed in 1949 by several astronomical societies and clubs.
Our constitution states that the goal of WAA is, “ to effect liaison between astronomical groups, to conduct
or participate in an annual convention of amateur astronomers, to present awards to persons or
organizations that have made an outstanding contribution to amateur astronomy during the preceding
years, and in general, to educate, encourage, and promote interest in science and astronomy.”
