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 topics emphasized in this updated, reprinted textbook encompass one major aspect of radiation protection—radiological assessment—as well as a major aspect of each of the fields of health physics, medical physics, and industrial hygiene. This textbook presents basic ideas and concepts in sufficient detail and in unified fashion to allow readers to gain a thorough understanding of the principles and techniques used in radiological analyses. Although the principles of radiological assessment are emphasized, a relatively large amount of data is provided in the chapters and in the appendixes to allow the reader to perform a wide range of realistic calculations. Most chapters in this textbook are supplemented with examples and exercises, and students are urged to study the examples and complete the exercises.
