March 24, 2021 – The American Nuclear Society’s Human Factors and Instrumentation and Control Division is hosting a free virtual webinar, “Digital Modernization Strategies Lunch & Learn,” April 1 at 12 noon EDT. This is the first webinar in a series that will provide greater access to notable leaders, trends, and practices within the industry from a virtual setting.
