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.

The Material Protection Accounting and Control Technologies program has completed a 2020 milestone to demonstrate Safeguards and Security by Design (SSBD) for a notional electrochemical reprocessing facility. The work has been outlined in a series of nine papers in a special issue of the Journal of Nuclear Materials Management. This panel session will describe key lessons learned from the SSBD process, the materials accountancy and physical protection approach, measurement technology development, and experimental testing. The approach and tools used in this work can be applied to other nuclear fuel cycle facilities in the future.
