The American Nuclear Society is an international, not-for-profit scientific and educational organization consisting of approximately 11,000 engineers, scientists, educators, students, and others with nuclear-related interests. These individuals represent more than 1,600 corporations, educational institutions, and government agencies - approximately 900 members live overseas in 40 countries.
The Society's main objective is to promote the advancement of engineering and science relating to the atomic nucleus. Other purposes are to integrate the many nuclear science and technology disciplines, encourage research, establish scholarships, disseminate information through publications and journals, inform the public about nuclear-related activities, hold meetings devoted to scientific and technical papers, and cooperate with government agencies, educational institutions, and other organizations having similar purposes.
All nuclear science and technology fields benefit from ANS' activities and programs. Individual ANS members can take advantage of numerous opportunities to achieve personal career objectives and professional growth; they can also influence the Society's activities and attitudes, and ultimately, public opinion.
As a member, you can directly influence the future of nuclear through ANS standards development, public information efforts, paper presentations, meeting organization and attendance, and committee and steering group participation. ANS membership provides opportunities for professional expression and recognition and gives you the chance to mix with all levels of the nuclear community through the ANS national organization, 51 U.S. and nine non-U.S. local sections, and 24 plant branches and 34 student sections.
ANS members are issued a convenient ANS ID card that includes their membership ID#, plus important headquarters contact information.
