Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy
The mission of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy Division (NNPD) is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology while simultaneously preventing the diversion and misuse of nuclear material and technology through appropriate safeguards and security, and promotion of nuclear nonproliferation policies. To achieve this mission, the objectives of the NNPD are to: Promote policy that discourages the proliferation of nuclear technology and material to inappropriate entities. Provide information to ANS members, the technical community at large, opinion leaders, and decision makers to improve their understanding of nuclear nonproliferation issues. Become a recognized technical resource on nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and security issues. Serve as the integration and coordination body for nuclear nonproliferation activities for the ANS. Work cooperatively with other ANS divisions to achieve these objective nonproliferation policies.

Sixty years ago, the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T), then known as the University of Missouri at Rolla, was one of the first U.S. institutions to offer a nuclear engineering degree. Now, decades after it was offered as an option within metallurgical engineering, Missouri S&T’s nuclear program has attained new status as the Nuclear Engineering and Radiation Science Department, the university announced on October 20.
The American Nuclear Society offers a variety of membership categories and options to meet your needs depending on where you are in your career. Membership are available for both individuals and organizations.
Persons who are engaged in activities in one or more fields of nuclear science and engineering or allied fields, and who shall meet at least one of the following requirements:
* Plus Entrance Fee: An entrance fee of $25 is required of all new members, as well as memberships that have lapsed longer than two years (reinstatements). Members who renew their memberships within a two-year time period are considered renewals. No Entrance Fee is charged to Students, Lifetime Members, or renewals.
Student members must be currently enrolled at least half time in one or more of the fields of nuclear science and engineering or allied fields in a school having, or eligible to have, a student branch of the Society, or in the Naval Nuclear Power School. Postgraduate and individuals employed full-time while pursuing a Ph.D. do not qualify for Student membership.
For a one-time fee, members can retain their ANS membership for life. Lifetime members will be sent a yearly statement to update address and membership information, order publications, and to make voluntary contributions to become an ANS Champion or to donate to the scholarship, local and student section challenge, and public outreach initiative funds.
Add $80 yearly overseas postage for printed copies of Nuclear News magazine for members outside U.S., Canada or Mexico.

Fusion Science and Technology Journal*
Nuclear Standard News (online only)
* Print subscriptions include searchable online access.
Voluntary contributions to the following ANS programs are appreciated:
ANS allows spouses who are current paid members of the Society the opportunity to replace one of their subscriptions to Nuclear News with another ANS publication. Contact ANS Membership for details.
Applications for membership are processed as soon as payment is received. New member information is available online in the New Members section.
All memberships are on an anniversary cycle. A renewal reminder will be sent prior to your membership expiration date. Please renew promptly to avoid discontinuation of service, elimination of member discounts, access to members-only content on the website and mailings of Nuclear News magazine. If you were a member of ANS in 2019 or 2020, you can renew your 2021 membership online.
American Nuclear Society member dues are not used for contributions to political parties or candidates or for independent expenditures on behalf of parties or candidates. Less than 1/10 of 1.0% (or 0.1%) of dues money goes to lobbying efforts. In the case of someone at the $170 dues level, this would be 17 cents.
