- The Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM)
held in July each year.
- The Harley Wood Lecture
is a public lecture held in association with the ASM, featuring a
distinguished local or overseas astronomer.
- The Harley Wood School of Astronomy (HWSA)
for postgraduate students, is usually held just before the ASM.
The Summer School in Theoretical Astrophysics
postgraduate students is held every two years, alternated with the Astroinformatics School, and organised by the ASA's ANITA chapter.
The Astroinformatics School
is held every two years, alternated with the Summer School on Theoretical Astrophysics,
and aims to meet the needs of new postgraduate students and other interested astronomers for computational skills.
The School was first run in 2009, taking over from the Aus-VO (Australian Virtual Observatory) Summer School (2007-8), and
is now organised by the ASA's ANITA chapter,
funded by the ASA with added sponsorship from other astronomical organisations in Australia and the generous support of the Richard Cole Fund.
The ASA Early Career Researcher Mentoring Workshop has been run every two years since 2012.
The ECR Workshop is aimed at postdocs and very junior faculty and aims to address topics related to career progression for the future leaders in our astronomy community.

Financial Arrangements for other meetings
The ASA may occasionally offer its endorsement of non-ASA conferences but the Society does not, in general,
offer financial support for conferences other than its own scientific meetings.
A Statement of ASA Policy on this issue is available
and enquiries should be directed to one of the ASA Secretaries.
