November 2019 Update
Thank you to the many ANS members and stakeholders who provided very valuable feedback by submitting comments, participating on conference calls, and for taking part in one-on-one conversations. ANS Change Plan 2020 has been updated to include your feedback and will be presented to the Board of Directors for review next week.
The ANS Board of Directors will review the plan during its November meeting. Once the Board finalizes the plan, the Implementation Teams comprised of staff and member leaders 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 improve ANS.
Thank you for your contributions to nuclear and your ANS membership.
