AAUS is governed by an elected Executive Board comprised of a President, Vice President, Secretary-Treasurer, and At-Large members. AAUS holds membership meetings twice a year, during the annual conventions of the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES) in the fall and Association for the Study of Nationalities (ASN) in the spring. Since 1990, AAUS publishes a newsletter, “The AAUS Visnyk,” which currently appears annually in an electronic format. To further its goal of fostering scholarship in the various fields of Ukrainian studies, the organization awards annual prizes for the best book and the best article in the fields of Ukrainian history, politics, language, literature, and culture, as well as a prize for the translation from Ukrainian into English. AAUS maintains a website, mailing list, Facebook page and Twitter presence, sponsors panels at the ASEEES annual conventions, and coordinates the participation of American Ukrainianists in the International Association for Ukrainian Studies (IAUS, or MAU in Ukrainian) congresses.
