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.

YMG launches volunteer incentive program
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 that of a professional. With this mission statement in mind, the YMG decided to gamify member engagement to encourage YMG member participation in Society events.
12th Nuclear Plant Instrumentation, Control and Human-Machine Interface Technologies (NPIC&HMIT 2021)

Raymond L. Herb
Janet Davis (ANS)
What will the control room of the future look like? How are MCR modernization design decisions made? How are the design process and objectives different for small modular reactors vs. existing power plants that are modernizing to support subsequent license renewal and extended operation into 80 years? Come hear several leaders discuss the Human Factors decisions and considerations that were key to their main control room design and modernization efforts. Hear about advances in Human Factors engineering and how the programs are changing to support modern human machine interfaces associated with digital controls. Hear about the challenges with integrating new controls in an existing plant, modern alarm management, and the challenges of training a new generation of operators in a hybrid control room.
