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 2018 Pacific Basin Nuclear Conference (PBNC 2018) was hosted by the American Nuclear Society (ANS) and was jointly organized by Idaho National Laboratory and Canadian Nuclear Laboratories. The theme of this year's conference was Advancing and Sustaining Nuclear Energy. This is the first time PBNC has been held in the United States since 2004. This meeting serves as an opportunity for leaders from countries throughout the Pacific Rim and beyond to engage on the most pressing issues that face the global nuclear industry today.
Approximately 150 papers were presented covering the following topics: probabilistic risk assessment, safety, and control systems, nuclear fuels and fluid dynamics, advanced chemistry and processing options, recent advances in nuclear security, advances in nuclear materials safety, enabling long term operations, advances in radionuclide analysis in support of decontamination and decommissioning, fuel core and related topics, technologies for power operations, severe accident management, and economics.
