Have an enjoyable summer. Technical Meetings will resume in the fall either in-person or virtually (quite possibly both)!
Congratulations to William “Bill” Wabbersen, winner of the 2020 ANS Landis Public Communication and Education Award.

Savannah River Section of the American Nuclear Society
The core purpose of the ANS Savannah River Section is to promote the awareness and understanding of the application of nuclear science and technology locally (in the Central Savannah River Area), nationally and globally.
Message from the Section Chair
I am honored to be the ANS Savannah River Section Chair for the third time. We have made great strides in the past years to be active in our community outreach, collaborate with other local professional society groups, provide engaging technical programs for our members, and expand our scholarship program. My goal for our section this coming year is to continue with our successful programs, gain organization and leadership knowledge for hosting conference topicals in order to fund our section activities, and increase our membership locally and nationally. I encourage members and the executive committee to take an active role in making our local section meaningful for yourselves, for the local community, and for the proliferation of knowledge for nuclear science and technology nationally.
Thanks, Tinh Tran
