American Nuclear Society Accelerator Applications Division Presentation to
American Nuclear Society Accelerator Applications Division Presentation to the ANS Board of Directors Jeffrey O. Johnson* November 12, 2014 Anaheim, CA *Chair 2012-2013 [Document prepared by Philip L Cole, Chair 2014-2015] 1 Mission The division was organized to promote the advancement of knowledge of the use of particle accelerator technologies for nuclear and other applications. It focuses
on production of photons, neutrons and other particles, utilization of these particles for scientific or industrial purposes, such as the production or destruction of radionuclides significant to energy, medicine, defense or other endeavors, as well as imaging and diagnostics. 2 AAD Executive Committee Structure Officers Chair Vice Chair Secretary Treasurer Philip L.

1. AAD membership is heavily comprised of academics and researchers with low penetration among those industries which can be considered as applied. It also has a higher than average proportion of students and recent (2014) graduates. This could be good for future growth if nurtured. (Table 1) 2. AAD membership also shows heavy concentration in four other divisions; most notably: a. Fusion Energy b. Isotopes & Radiation c. Biology & Medicine d. Materials Science & Technology It has very light representation in those divisions more relevant to the power industry. (Table 2) See Appendix A
8 Character of AAD Membership II Analysis by Diane Cianflone, Director Membership & Marketing 3. AAD members are also quite a bit younger and have a shorter ANS membership tenure than does the total ANS membership. Our data show that younger and less tenured members have a higher attrition rate than do older, longer-standing members. This may explain, in part, why AAD membership is falling at a somewhat faster rate than ANS as a whole. Since nearly 45% of your members are less than age 46 (as compared to 33% of total ANS) you may wish to consider how to appeal to and engage/involve younger members. (Table 3) See Appendix A
9 Character of AAD Membership III Analysis by Diane Cianflone, Director Membership & Marketing 4. Of the remaining factors examined, most do not show much difference between the AAD and the total ANS membership (Tables 3 & 4). Of the three that do. a. The lower incidence of having a PE certification is understandable given the strong bent towards research and academia of AAD members. b. The fact that AAD members are more likely to self-pay their ANS dues is a good thing. Surprisingly, it has been shown that members who self-pay have a slightly higher retention rate than those whose company pay their dues.
c. The AAD has a higher than average representation in ANS leadership. Again, this follows what has been seen elsewhere; researchers and academics are more likely to be in ANS leadership than are those in the more practical/applied segments.

AccApp15 CLASS III Meeting (embedded with 2015 ANS Winter Meeting) 10 Topics 20 Topic Organizers (good geographical/international balance) 30 Members of the Program Committee We expect approx. 200 participants in nuclear engineering, nuclear physics, and accelerator science. IAEA is a cosponsor of AccApp15. See Appendix B 17 AAD Budget 2013
Balance Forward from Previous Year 2014 (6/30/14) $30,642 $30, 972 Member Dues $674 $300
One-Time Budget Adjustment $650 Total Income $1,324 $300 Student Support $3000 $3000
Other Expenses $0 $0 $30,972 $28,272 Balance 18 In Closing
Big impact with biennial AccApp Topical Meetings collaborate with the IAEA international footprint only conference that brings together nuclear engineers, nuclear physicists, and accelerator physicists Support for Students: $3000/year (2013, 2014) Cooperating with the larger divisions (RPD, FCWMD) for mutual benefit. We have held steady at about 2.8% of ANS Membership for the past dozen years. We have room for growth. 19 20 21 22
