Connecticut, Pittsburgh Receive Local Section Honors
The American Nuclear Society (ANS) awarded the Connecticut Local Section of ANS with the Best Public Information (small section) and Best Section Management (small section). The ANS Pittsburgh Local Section also took home the Best Membership (small section) award.
The Pittsburgh Local Section saw a 20% growth in membership and hosted events focusing on small modular reactors and nuclear energy policy in conjunction with Westinghouse.
The Connecticut Local Section hosted student education events at a number of grade schools, while also remaining active with pertinent state issues including the Indian Point nuclear facility.
ANS President Donald R. Hoffman will recognize both local sections with their awards at the 2013 ANS Winter Meeting in Washington, D.C. during the President’s Special Session.
ANS Local Sections provide resources for ANS members to be engaged with the organization with networking opportunities both locally and nationally. Local Sections are also able to deliver their residents public information and public services on how nuclear has enhanced our quality of life in their communities.
