ANS members participate in many ways to influence the Society's activities and attitudes. Ultimately, as the leaders in the field of nuclear science and technology, ANS members influence public opinion and inform public policy.

The Grassroots initiative was inspired by Former Governor John Sununu's participation in the ANS Winter meeting in 2002. Sununu emphasized the opportunities present when nuclear professionals enter the public debate. In March 2003, Sununu to meet with ANS leadership to discuss outreach strategies. With the introduction of next nuclear generation, ANS members must seek out receptive audiences and deliver positive messages about nuclear science and technology of the 21st century.
