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.

Eisenhower’s “Atoms for Peace” at 70
Seventy years ago to the day, President Dwight D. Eisenhower gave his historic address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York City. (See December 2023 Nuclear News's “Leaders” column to read the reflections of Kathryn Huff, the Department of Energy’s assistant secretary for nuclear energy, on the speech’s anniversary.)

Yes, we have seen historic U.S. investments in nuclear technology in the last two years. Nuclear optimism is at a generational high. However, tough challenges remain: a laborious licensing process, a domestic enrichment gap, lack of progress on nuclear waste policy, a steep scale-up of our workforce and supply chains, demonstrating first of a kind fission and fusion technologies, just to name a few. It’s become increasingly clear that the world will not be able to solve its most fundamental climate and energy challenges without the power of nuclear technology, As such, we cannot afford to merely kick these challenges down the road. We must face them head on. If nuclear fails, the planet fails. That is not an option.
