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.

CNSC vendor design review of eVinci microreactor to begin
Westinghouse's eVinci microreactor (Image: Westinghouse)
Westinghouse Electric Company has signed a service agreement with the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) to bring the eVinci microreactor closer to commercialization, the company announced Tuesday. The agreement initiates a vendor design review (VDR)—a prelicensing technical assessment of a company’s reactor technology.
The objective of a VDR, according to the CNSC, is to verify the acceptability of a nuclear power plant design with respect to Canadian nuclear regulatory requirements and expectations, as well as Canadian codes and standards. The review also aims to identify fundamental barriers to licensing a new design in Canada and to assure that a resolution path exists for any design issues identified.
Questions regarding the technical program including volunteering, panels, workshops, plenaries, poster and oral presentation submission, and judging, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Amanda graduated with a B.S. in Nuclear Engineering in 2019 and an M.S. in Nuclear Engineering in 2020, both from the University of Tennessee Knoxville. She is a graduate student studying the nuclear fuel cycle and nonproliferation safeguards under Prof. Kathryn Huff and Dr. Madicken Munk. She currently serves as the Student Director for ANS National, has been an active member of the UTK and UIUC student chapters, and has served on multiple committees at the national level. You may contact her with any questions related to diversity equity and inclusion at email@example.com
Sam graduated with a B.S. in Physics from UIUC in 2019. He attended his first ANS student conference in April 2019 and was so inspired by his experience that he decided to pursue graduate work in nuclear engineering rather than physics. Now he does research on machine learning applications and computational reactor physics with Prof. Kathryn Huff and Dr. Madicken Munk in the ARFC group. Hosting a student conference that will inspire others the way he was inspired is one of his top priorities this year. You may contact him with general meeting questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Jeremy graduated with a B.S. in Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering from UIUC in 2018, and is now a graduate student studying plasma science under Prof. David Ruzic. He has been heavily involved in the UIUC student chapter of ANS since his freshman year, serving on the executive board for three years as External Vice President and President. Jeremy has attended the past five ANS Student Conferences, which serve as an inspiration for his involvement in this proposal process. He is dedicated to making sure that future generations of students are able to have the same amazing experiences through ANS as he had, especially at the ANS Student Conference. Outside of ANS, he has held a summer internship at Oak Ridge National Lab, and is currently focusing his research towards combined laser-plasma systems for materials processing. You may contact him with program questions at email@example.com
