The Decommissioning Strategy Forum (produced by the ExchangeMonitor Publications & Forums) is partnering with RCNET for this year’s forum, which takes place June 17-18, 2019 at The Westin in Nashville, TN. RCNET will co-locate their annual professional meeting following the forum on June 19.

The second annual Decommissioning Strategy Forum allows attendees to learn how to capitalize on opportunities in the nuclear decommissioning market. This year’s program will explore the theme Driving Efficiency in Today’s Evolving Decommissioning Marketplace. Each session will include both a utility and supplier perspective.

“We are so excited that this partnership allows us to gain the perspective of RCNET as both attendees and speakers for the Forum,” said Nancy Berlin, Program Coordinator at ExchangeMonitor. “The decommissioning industry recognizes the necessity of reaching the next generation of professionals, and this co-location helps us to facilitate that connection.”

Posted by on .

This recently published report reflects the proceedings, presentations, and takeaways from the first ever Equity and Inclusion STEM Thought Leaders' Summit held in October 2018. This summit was funded through the ATE grant the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) received from the NSF and included a steering committee representing ATE projects and centers, in addition to AACC-affiliated councils. 

The summit entailed a series of workshop sessions revolving around a variety of issues concerning STEM education and the ATE program: equity gaps; recruitment and retainment strategies for underrepresented populations; and professional development, to name a few.

Summit sessions were attended by faculty and administrator teams from 15 colleges all new to the ATE program. The sessions were designed to be highly engaging, drawing feedback and insight from community college educators and leaders about these pertinent issues. 

Read the full report to learn more about the summit, in addition to projects and centers (including ATE Central) that were highlighted for ongoing support within the ATE Community.
