ANS members approve amendment adding YMG rep to board of directors
The American Nuclear Society will include a representative from the Young Members Group on its Board of Directors after ANS members voted this week overwhelmingly in favor of amending Article B6 of the ANS bylaws. The change was mandated by Objective Outcome 5 of the ANS Change Plan 2020.
To keep the number of directors at 16, the approved amendment decreased the number of non–U.S. resident directors from three to two.

The cost of installation is a significant adder to the cost of the Modification driving the ROI and NPV equations. Cost and risk reduction are essential to the economic bottom line. Plants will need to implement modifications at a lower cost and risk, cost escalation, and plant upsets. These projects must deliver on promised benefits to O&M cost reduction. This is the last frontier in using digital to build a better and more efficient plant. Come hear what some smart utilities are doing to reduce risk, reduce cost, and increase efficiency in implementing their digital modifications effectively.
