ANS is celebrating the success of its first Virtual Annual Meeting, which drew a record 2,346 registered attendees.
On the heels of that success, ANS has announced that the Utility Working Conference (UWC) will also be converted to a virtual event in 2020. The one-day UWC Virtual Summit, titled, “It’s Go Time: Creating Momentum Toward Transformational Change,” will be held August 11.
The in-person meeting was originally scheduled for three days in Florida, but plans have changed due to COVID-19.
Dan Churchman of Southern Nuclear is the general chair of the UWC Virtual Summit. Vince Gilbert of Model Performance serves as the technical program chair, while Jon Anderson of ACA Proactive is assistant technical program chair.
The summit will feature an opening plenary session in the morning, which will be followed by three sets of breakout sessions beginning at 11:30 a.m. EDT. The final set will conclude at 5 p.m. A 30-minute break between session sets is also built into the schedule.
