Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy
The mission of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy Division (NNPD) is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology while simultaneously preventing the diversion and misuse of nuclear material and technology through appropriate safeguards and security, and promotion of nuclear nonproliferation policies. To achieve this mission, the objectives of the NNPD are to: Promote policy that discourages the proliferation of nuclear technology and material to inappropriate entities. Provide information to ANS members, the technical community at large, opinion leaders, and decision makers to improve their understanding of nuclear nonproliferation issues. Become a recognized technical resource on nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and security issues. Serve as the integration and coordination body for nuclear nonproliferation activities for the ANS. Work cooperatively with other ANS divisions to achieve these objective nonproliferation policies.

The Young Member Excellence Award recognizes a young member who has demonstrated overall excellence in a variety of areas.
It is presented to a member of the Young Members Group who is involved with ANS on a national level, actively advances the goals of the ANS Young Members Group, displays outstanding non- technical skills as well as technical or managerial ability, is recognized by others in their field, demonstrates high quality and safety standards, and positively represents nuclear science and technology to the general population.
Emphasis is placed on well-rounded qualifications. Candidates with demonstrated excellence in many of the areas outlined above are preferred to candidates with outstanding qualifications in only one or two areas, who may be eligible for a different ANS award that specifically recognizes those achievements. (Note specifically that this award is different from the Landis Young Member Engineering Achievement Award, which is given to an individual who has made significant technical contributions.)
Emphasis is also placed on continuing excellence. Candidates with a demonstrated history of these qualities over several years are preferred to those with one or two discrete achievements, although these achievements will certainly be considered.
The nominee must be an ANS member and a member of the Young Members Group at the time of nomination. The nominee must further be either under the age of 36 or within five years of graduation at the time of nomination (i.e., meeting the ANS definition of “young member”).
The award consists of an engraved plaque and is presented at the ANS Winter Meeting.
Nominations must include the completed nomination form accompanied by the following supporting documents:
Nomination forms and supporting documents (in Word or Adobe Acrobat) should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with a carbon copy to the Young Members Group at email@example.com.
