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.

Available to All Users
Join ANS's Young Members Group for a casual conversation about nuclear careers with Marci Shelton, senior nuclear engineer at SHINE Technologies LLC. Shelton currently works on production of radioisotopes for diagnostic and therapeutic applications in medicine, such as cancer therapy and imaging. She talked about her work with SHINE as well as her background in the nuclear industry. Following her talk, students asked questions about Shelton’s and other careers in the nuclear field.
Originally from southwest Wisconsin and a University of Wisconsin-Madison alumnus, Shelton has a diverse background in the nuclear industry having worked at the UW reactor lab, Idaho National Laboratory, and two nuclear utilities in both operations and engineering. Her most recent role before joining SHINE was as lead installation acceptance test developer & outage test director for an analog-to-digital control system upgrade at Exelon - Byron Generating Station.
