Our flagship moves forward
Originally published in the July 2020 issue of Nuclear News.
Welcome to the inaugural edition of the new Nuclear News! What you are seeing is truly the product of a team effort, led by our Director of Publications John Fabian and veteran Editor-in-Chief Rick Michal, to fundamentally reimagine the way we bring you news and insights from the wide world of nuclear science and technology. Nuclear News has always been the flagship publication of the American Nuclear Society, but in recent decades our visual format has gotten a little, well . . . long in the tooth.
The Public Policy Committee oversees the Society's official positions on public issues involving various aspects of nuclear science and technology. The committee's main role is to create and update position statements that reflect the views of the membership or in anticipation of relevant policies. The committee may also provide support to ANS leaders regarding interactions with government officials and assist in the development of official Society statements for public release.
