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.

This session starts with a discussion by Brandon Jenewein on the Work Management Simplification South Texas Project is implementing. This project will result in a significant reduction in personnel through “automated” Functional Equipment Group (FEG) Long-Term Scheduling. Brandon will be supported in this discussion by Jon Anderson, Tim Johnson, and Richard Jackson, three suppliers that are helping with this project. Pat Schotter from Palo Verde will discuss their TeMPO project and significant savings through automation. Topics will include Work Order Screening, Recurring Task Generation, Risk Reviews, Material Requests, etc. Scott Lappegaard from Xcel will discuss the automations they are working on including, Ready to Work Repetitive Work, including Master Tagouts, Model Work Orders, Correct Spare Parts, etc. Pete Arthur, John Mc Donald and Bryant Hearne from INPO will be supporting.
