Abstract:
Although the nuclear industry enjoys a reasonable level of acceptance from the public, fear still drives policy development and public opinion. The dialogue that takes place in the media is still largely driven by misinformation and half-truths. If the nuclear industry is to maintain and even expand its ability to improve quality of life for people, we as a professional community must change the conversation. Through ANS's new Center for Nuclear Science & Technology Information, ANS hopes to do just that. Hear from the Director of the Center, Bonnifer Ballard, on the vision for the Center, where the Center is now in development, plans for the coming year, and about ANS's plans for a new more strategic communications approach overall.
