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.

Nuclear is well recognized as a clean, affordable, reliable and resilient source of electricity generation. Continued efforts are necessary to facilitate modernization of the technology through innovation. To this end, the private and public sectors are investing in research, development, and deployment of advanced reactors. This includes aggressive strategies to demonstrate advanced reactor designs in less than ten years. This session focuses on providing private and public sector perspectives on the ongoing activities to implement a agile, efficient, and predictable regulatory framework to support these aggressive timelines for the advanced reactors deployment.
