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.
Educational Session|Panel|Sponsored by Decommissioning
Tuesday, August 11, 2020|11:00AM–12:30PM (12:00–1:30PM EDT)
Lynne Goodman (Retired)

This session will address what is involved in decommissioning a nuclear power plant and approaches to decommissioning, including regulatory perspectives and new innovative decommissioning models. Historically, the owner/licensee has performed or overseen decommissioning activities. In new approaches, a decommissioning entity becomes the licensee and/or owner of the plant and controls the cleanup. Costs of decommissioning will be addressed. The session will include a discussion of pros and cons of various models.
