Benefits of NIA membership

Hero lines Hero lines

Becoming an NIA member will open your company up to a whole new world within the nuclear industry.

The Nuclear Industry Association is a highly effective advocate, providing a dynamic and credible voice on behalf of its membership. Whether your business is solely based in nuclear, or nuclear makes up a part of what you do, or if you are looking to join the sector, there are many ways NIA membership can benefit your business.

NIA membership gives you:

Networking opportunities

NIA business groups gives you the chance to raise your company profile across the industry. Engage with partners, including SME’s, who are established nuclear suppliers or are new players in the market. Give yourself the opportunity to understand other members’ unique products and services that could support your own business.

NIA brings the whole industry together, and allows companies to exchange ideas, hear about opportunities and help develop important policies.

Our groups, which cover New Build, Decommissioning and Existing Operations, Legal and Financial Affairs, Exports, Fusion and External Relations, are led by industry for industry to ensure members get the most up-to-date and relevant information for their business.  They each meet throughout the year across the UK.

Promotion to industry

Our website hosts a secure members area where you can access the Members Directory, as well as the presentations given at Business Group meetings and webinars. It means members never miss out.

The directory is an exclusive tool offering a comprehensive database of our members. It provides unrivalled access to companies wishing to search for products and services. It showcases your organisation to other members, putting you in front of the right people. The directory provides you with a key contact within each NIA member organisation

NIA members can contribute articles for our quarterly magazine, Industry Link as well as promoting news stories on our website, helping to promote your business across the sector.

Members will receive free copies and discounted advertising rates in Industry Link. The magazine is circulated to over 5,000 people including all levels of Government and industry.

We share knowledge exclusively with members through our weekly newsletters which highlight important industry news and key legislative and regulatory changes you need to be aware of as well as forthcoming events and key member news stories.

A voice to Government

NIA is the voice of the nuclear industry in Westminster and in the media. We advocate for all parts of the sector, from existing operations to new build, the supply chain and decommissioning. We want to ensure the nuclear industry can grow and help you take advantage of opportunities at home and overseas.

Members have the opportunity to influence our policy positions through our Business Groups and inform our consultation responses, meaning your thoughts will go directly to policymakers within Government.

Discounted events

In addition to free attendance at our extensive Business Group meetings and webinars, all members receive discounts to attend and exhibit at our flagship annual conferences where you will hear about new opportunities and meet senior leaders from across the industry and Government.

We are also able to negotiate discounts for members to other nuclear events and conferences in the UK and overseas, which we advertise on our website and through our member communications channel

What our members say

NIA working groups offer a valuable way to network with clients, partners and suppliers across the industry. Being able to catch so many people in the same place at the same time is something we really appreciate.
