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)

Jeffrey C. Joe (INL)
David R. Desaulniers (U.S. NRC)
Pat Schroeder (ANS)
This panel session highlights the work to develop consensus and other industry standards relevant to nuclear Instrumentation and Control Systems and Human Factors Engineering. Featured panelists include Richard Wood (IEEE I&C), Wolfgang Krause (IEC Human Factors), Judi See (HFES Human Factors), Prasad Kadambi (ANS I&C), and David Desaulniers (IEEE Human Factors). Panelist will describe their currently active standards, with an emphasis on their relevance and value to the nuclear I&C and human factors communities. Panelist will also highlight new standards under development and what gaps in the existing technical guidance these new standards are intended to fill.
