Hearing from Our Members

  • Couldn’t make it to Maryland for the 5th annual joint Northeast/Atlantic Regional Conference, pictured above?  We’ve highlighted four key takeaways from the amazing panelists.
  • Canadian Nuclear Association’s Nuclear Hill Day was October 28th and 29th, and it featured a great selection of nuclear advocates from NAYGN, WiN, and other groups. More importantly, it shows the actions and impact young members in our industry can make!
  • We offer a big THANK YOU to our 2018 Continental SENSEI Award winners, who have each gone above and beyond to help younger nuclear employees grow and thrive in their careers. Our sixteen SENSEI winners span 12 companies and represent the people that help move KT&R from an idea to an action!
