“It’s hard for me to tell you just how excited I am to help announce the agenda topics and the members of the RadWaste Summit’s advisory committee,” said Nancy Berlin, Program Director, ExchangeMonitor Forums. “It’s the deep commitment to the needs of the industry that has made this Forum so vital: a place where policy melds with industry, where information helps business decisions. The advisory committee continues to help to push this critical mission forward,” Berlin said.

Given the current political climate, there’s much that we will need to discuss at this year’s meeting to continue to move this industry forward. Attendees will hear first-hand about the latest regulations, changes, and solutions for the future from high-level speakers and panelists. In addition, networking is key to capitalize on business opportunities within the nuclear waste industry, and with over 350 attendees, speakers, exhibitors and sponsors, there is plenty of networking time built into the agenda.
