ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Young Members Group
The Young Members Group works to encourage and enable all young professional members to be actively involved in the efforts and endeavors of the Society at all levels (Professional Divisions, ANS Governance, Local Sections, etc.) as they transition from the role of a student to the role of a professional. It sponsors non-technical workshops and meetings that provide professional development and networking opportunities for young professionals, collaborates with other Divisions and Groups in developing technical and non-technical content for topical and national meetings, encourages its members to participate in the activities of the Groups and Divisions that are closely related to their professional interests as well as in their local sections, introduces young members to the rules and governance structure of the Society, and nominates young professionals for awards and leadership opportunities available to members.

Sen. Manchin urges Biden to preserve U.S. nuclear fleet
Highlighting nuclear’s role in providing reliable power, reducing emissions, and addressing climate change, Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.) sent a letter to President Biden, urging him to support the continued operation of the United States’ civil nuclear fleet and prevent further plant closures. Manchin, chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, said that preventing the closure of existing nuclear power plants is critical to achieving emission reduction goals while ensuring a reliable grid.
COVID-19 Note: Please check this page often for meeting status updates due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
American Nuclear Society meetings and conferences are the best way to keep current with the ever changing fields of nuclear science and technology.
In addition to two national meetings per year, ANS sponsors many topical meetings which concentrate on a particular technical area. Many of these meetings are planned many years in advance and are listed here. To have a meeting listed here, it must be approved by the National Program Committee of the American Nuclear Society for inclusion on the ANS Calendar.
For more than 65 years, ANS has provided a forum for advancing the state of applied nuclear science and technology. We remain committed to serving the needs of the nuclear professional community during these unprecedented times. In the coming weeks, we will be introducing a new set of digital and video tools that will enable the robust technical exchange of an ANS meeting—papers, presentations, posters, and plenaries, etc.—while ensuring the health and safety of everyone involved during the COVID-19 pandemic.
