2022 National Transportation Stakeholders Forum
The 2022 Annual Meeting of the National Transportation Stakeholders Forum (NTSF) will be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, June 6 – 9, hosted by the Council of State Governments Eastern Regional Conference. Meeting registration and the hotel reservation portal will be available in winter 2022.
The Annual Meeting will focus on the Department’s planning and execution efforts for the safe transport of radioactive materials. As in previous years, the 2022 Meeting will serve as a collaborative gathering point for representatives from federal agencies, state, local, and tribal governments, private industry and other entities associated with these important issues. During the meeting, participants will receive timely updates and presentations from a variety of speakers. They will also be given the opportunity to assemble into smaller groups for greater interaction and in-depth discussions during breakout sessions and members-only ad hoc working groups. In addition, attendees may convene with a State Regional Group and/or the Tribal Radioactive Materials Transportation Committee for their individual spring meetings.
For more information on the 2022 NTSF meeting, please contact Uldis Vanags.
Please be aware that we are monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the ability to travel and hold large, inside gatherings. If you make early travel arrangements, keep in mind that circumstances may change between now and June.
Who Should Attend?
NTSF meetings are designed for personnel associated with emergency management, security, inspection and enforcement, packaging and transportation, environmental protection, rules and regulations, and radiation protection in connection with shipments of radioactive materials.
The sessions at the 2022 Annual Meeting will be particularly relevant to personnel at the state, tribal, and federal level, as well as industry personnel that interact with government regulators. Those unfamiliar with the NTSF are encouraged to attend a “Newcomers” webinar and the “Newcomers Orientation Breakfast” to learn more about the event.
About the NTSF
The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Transportation Stakeholders Forum is the mechanism through which DOE communicates at a national level with states and tribes about the Department’s shipments of radioactive waste and materials, as well as occasional high-visibility shipments that are nonradioactive. The purpose of the NTSF is to bring transparency, openness, and accountability to DOE’s offsite transportation activities through collaboration with state and tribal governments.
