The Young Members Advancement Award recognizes an individual or group that has made a significant contribution towards integrating young members into ANS as a whole.

It is given to an individual or group that has increased membership or participation of young members, created leadership or experience opportunities for young members, trained or mentored young members, raised funding for young members, publicly supported the cause of young members, or taken other actions to get young members involved with ANS on a national level.

Special consideration is given to those whose actions have far-reaching effect, such as impacting large numbers of young members or setting a public example for young member outreach.

Nominees need not be Young Members Group members, ANS members or ANS-based organizations, but must be living at the time of selection.

The award consists of an engraved plaque and is presented at the ANS Winter Conference.
