The purpose of this session is to make the case why ANS members should consider running for elected office, and then give them a grounding in what that requires, drawing on lessons from actual elected officials. This diverse group of STEM professionals turned politicians will also discuss the ways elected officials can contribute to a positive future for nuclear technology, how to file the necessary paperwork needed to begin your campaign, and what the campaign experience is like as an outsider to traditional political circles.
