ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
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.

The second Advances in Nuclear Nonproliferation Technology and Policy Conference (ANTPC) 2018 is rescheduled to take place
during the ANS Winter Meeting due to widespread flooding following Hurricane Florence. This Meeting is co-sponsored by
the American Nuclear Society's Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy and Fuel Cycle Waste Management Divisions. The goal is to
stimulate conversation among nuclear science researchers, facilities operators, and policy makers and provide a venue for
discussions on relevant policy and technical needs in nonproliferation.
