Membership Renewal

All memberships expire December 31st with the first renewal reminder sent in September. Please renew your memberships promptly to avoid discontinuation of service, elimination of member discounts, access to members only content on the website and mailings of Nuclear News magazine. If you were a member of ANS in 2016 or 2017, you can renew your 2018 membership online.

American Nuclear Society member dues are not used for contributions to political parties or candidates or for independent expenditures on behalf of parties or candidates. Less than 1/10 of 1.0% (or 0.1%) of dues money goes to lobbying efforts. In the case of someone at the $170 dues level, this would be 17 cents.
