Nuclear Energy Colleague:

You spoke. We listened!

Starting this August, the American Nuclear Society is transforming its annual Utility Working Conference (UWC) to provide more focus on the current challenges facing the U.S. nuclear industry and practical approaches the industry needs to survive and thrive in a rapidly changing environment.

Our theme this year is “Nuclear Sustainability: Leveraging an Evolving Workforce and Workplace.” ANS is committed to providing the nuclear energy community a more value-rich, solutions-oriented experience for all.

Gone are the numerous “technical tracks” that frankly have gotten stale over the years. The new UWC will offer fewer, deeper dives on more current, industry-relevant topics. We are banning “death-by PowerPoint” and instead designing sessions to be open and collaborative, allowing leaders to share experiences and insights, and encouraging attendees to bring back fresh perspectives and actionable intelligence to their teams.

This August, we have planned a completely live, in-person meeting, but we recognize that for some, travel opportunities may be limited. Of course, your safety and health are paramount. As such, we plan to record a few sessions so those of you who cannot attend will get a taste of what to expect in the years ahead.

While we’ve targeted our new UWC agenda to the decision-maker, problem-solver level, we welcome participants from all levels of your organization.

Please consider also using the UWC as a developmental opportunity for your emerging leaders to engage in important topical discussions while strengthening their network of professional peers.

The UWC is a key time for utility, supplier, and regulatory leaders to come together across disciplines to network, benchmark, and solve problems.

We hope to see you in August.
