All members of the American Nuclear Society who are under the age of 36 or who are within 5 years of graduation from an accredited educational institution are automatically registered as members of the Young Members Group at no additional cost.

For eligible members, membership in ANS YMG will not count as one of the two Professional Division memberships that are included in the annual ANS membership dues. ANS members who are age 36 or older and beyond the first 5 years after graduation, may enroll as YMG members by paying the fee for additional professional division membership and selecting YMG on their annual membership renewal form, as with any other Professional Divisions.
