Dear ANS Members:
At the June 2019 ANS Board of Directors meeting, the Board approved "ANS Change Plan 2020" - a blueprint to increase ANS's value to you, and to improve our operations and organizational structure. The Board directed ANS staff to implement the Change Plan with strong member involvement.
We would like to share our progress to date.
There are 20 objectives that we are seeking to achieve under Change Plan 2020. These objectives focus on the following areas (see below for the complete list):
- Board of Directors
- Commercial Publications
- Congressional Fellowship Program
- Fundraising for Advocacy Activities
- Organizational Unity (“1ANS”)
We have created a team for each area to develop specific plans. Each of these ten teams consists of staff members and Society leaders who are involved in these areas or who can bring valuable knowledge and experience to the teams. Team members include Board members, committee chairs, past ANS presidents, and leaders from Local and Student Sections, Professional Divisions, and the Young Members Group.
Once the teams (a.k.a. “implementation teams”) develop a first draft of their plans, they will ask for feedback from potentially affected Society stakeholders. The implementation teams will then carefully consider this feedback as they develop the final versions of their plans.
The Board will review the plans during its November 2019 meeting and make changes where warranted. Once the Board finalizes the plans, the teams will begin implementing them. The goal is to have the implementation process completed by the end of 2020 unless there are highly compelling reasons for an extension in some areas.
We are excited about Change Plan 2020 and its potential to greatly improve ANS. Please click on the button below to provide feedback to us on the Change Plan and the process we are using to implement it.
Thank you for your contributions to nuclear and your ANS membership.
