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.

Pact signed on potential BWRX-300 deployment in Saskatchewan
Ontario-based GEH SMR Technologies Canada Ltd. and the Saskatchewan Industrial and Mining Suppliers Association (SIMSA) announced yesterday the signing of a memorandum of understanding focused on the potential deployment of the BWRX-300 small modular reactor in Saskatchewan.
The MOU calls for engaging with local suppliers to maximize the role of the Saskatchewan supply chain in the nuclear energy industry.

The recent upsurge in Decommissioning, Dismantlement and Environmental Remediation of older NPPs demands use of a more effective and high value approach to Security Cost optimization during end of life asset management planning and project execution. The DDER sector stands as a leader within the nuclear industry having embraced more innovative technologies/methods including those now used in other relevant federal applications/arenas-i.e. US DOE/NNSA and DOD.
Nuclear Power Plant security and safeguards processes and methods have demonstrated results that stand well above those in use at other types of conventional Power Plants- and should be recognized and realized for their contributions to the society greater good- both during operation and during DDER end -of asset life activities. However, the challenge is that typically this single cost element represents the highest O&M expenditure both year on year and during DDER.
This panel will demonstrate how these high standards can continue to be met or exceeded during the future with substantial cost savings using available methodology including:
* Use of modern tools - Evaluation of risk-informed and performance-based methods.
* Planning conceptual advantage - Physical separation of active systems to the extent practical to avoid limiting localized consequences from security breaches or internal acts or external damage.
* Consideration of remote/passive features
* Identification of improvements to redundancy -
* Minimization of reliance on personnel -
* Evaluation of increased utilization of remote and automated technology -
* Consideration of geo-location and other functional effects -
