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.

April 14–16, 2022
We in the American Nuclear Society and Department of Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign eagerly look forward to welcoming students, professionals, and the future leaders in nuclear science and technology at the 2022 ANS Student Conference.
Our theme is: Saving the World One Atom at a Time. This theme reflects the important role the nuclear sciences will play in solving many of the world’s grand challenges. It also recognizes the atomic contributions we all make every day. Together, these contributions form the foundations of solutions to these grand challenges. It celebrates the people that make science possible by acknowledging that we come to this conference from an infinitude of backgrounds and experiences. It encourages us to widen our circles and include scientists and engineers with a diversity of thoughts. Finally, it inspires us to be active participants in the solutions to the world’s problems.
This year, our planning committee is hosting Fall semester information sessions with student sections to give them the ins and outs of attending our in-person conference. If your section would like to set up a session, contact our Technical Co-Chair Jeremy Mettler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
