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 provides a forum for discussion of fundamental principles that make complex data more understandable, usable, and accessible so that station leaders can more effectively communicate performance gaps and make better informed decisions for the organization. A framework, currently in use at one organization, will provide the basis of a discussion on key attributes to support a deliberate, step-by-step approach that helps measure what matters in a more efficient and more engaging manner. The intent of this session is to lay the foundation for future work on exploring the value of using AI/Machine Learning to improve data analytics and visualization.
