Section Management

ANS local sections are affiliated with a progressive, professional association dedicated to promoting the advancement of engineering and science relating to the atomic nucleus. However, please understand that as a public, non-profit organization, ANS needs to keep our records in order. So we require sections to be compliant with the Society’s policies and procedures to maintain ANS’s integrity and mission. To that end, here is a one-stop online resource intended to help build, revive, and elevate local sections:

Chair's Manual

Chair's Manual

This “roadmap” provides the requirements for local sections as defined by ANS national, explains where additional information can be obtained, provides reproducible forms to assist in interfacing with ANS national, and provides a storage medium for key documents developed by the local section to provide continuity for local section leaders. This manual is designed to be a concise reference for key materials, not a repository for general correspondence or other information.
