Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is an honor to be appointed General Chair of the 2017 ANS Winter Conference and Nuclear Technology Expo. My goal is to plan and organize a meeting to facilitate the cross-generation collaboration and networking and to build up the young nuclear professional pool for the future nuclear research, energy and technology industries. To accomplish this primary goal, I will organize and invite well-known leaders and executives from government agencies, national laboratories, nuclear utilities, industry companies, and universities to speak at various panels and sessions discussing the challenges we face and ideas toward solutions.

I want to personally invite you to attend and participate in the 2017 ANS Winter Meeting. Our speakers and presenters will be sharing with you how the nuclear industry can accomplish “Generations in Collaboration: Building for Tomorrow.” This is also a great opportunity for you to network and collaborate with your colleagues while sharing your innovative ideas.

I look forward to seeing you in D.C. and sharing with you how we can together build a new nuclear for tomorrow.

Ty Troutman
General Chair
