International Committee

The International Committee's responsibility is to oversee ANS's role in regarding potential affiliations, liaison, and cooperative agreements with other technical societies throughout the world; foster the exchange of information on nuclear energy among ANS and other international organizations; and help create Society Local Sections outside the United States, where appropriate. In addition, the committee cooperates with national societies outside the United States interested in designation as Affiliated National Societies, assisting them in the preparation of a petition, and in other organizational and operating procedures. The committee's mission also includes bringing value to ANS members by providing information on the activities and opportunities international nuclear energy societies offer to them.
