Citizens for Nuclear Technology Awareness (CNTA) announced that Dr. Allison Hamilton Molnar has been named the organization’s new Executive Director, effective August 1, 2023.

Hamilton Molnar will replace current Executive Director Dr. James Marra, who will stay on with the organization as the Nuclear Technology Advisor.

CNTA provides education and information on nuclear technology, including nuclear waste management and environmental remediation; energy sources; medical applications of radiation; industrial applications, including food irradiation; nuclear production processes; and national security.

“Allison has served as the Director of Operations for CNTA since December 2017, so is intimately familiar with the organization and its mission,” said CNTA Board of Directors Chair Steve Sheetz. “Combined with her background in non-profit fundraising and management, her passion to see CNTA succeed made her an excellent choice to fill this role.”

Hamilton Molnar has a Bachelor of Arts degree in group social studies for secondary education (Grand Valley State University, Allendale, MI); a master’s degree in applied politics (University of Akron, Akron, OH); a master’s degree in political science (University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA); and a doctorate in Political Science (University of Iowa).

She also has a track record of public service. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Cumbee Center to Assist Abused Persons; as a fundraiser for FOTAS-Aiken Animal Shelter; and volunteers with Habitat for Humanity of Aiken County. She also serves as a part-time faculty member, providing instruction in political science at Middle Georgia State University.

Hamilton Molnar believes that much of the fear surrounding nuclear is caused by misinformation and hopes to use her new role to help educate people about, and advocate for, the use of nuclear in energy, medicine, and science.

“I am excited for this opportunity to expand my role within CNTA,” said Hamilton Molnar. “I believe in the potential for nuclear and how much it plays a role in our everyday lives. We have a wealth of resources in the area in the form of subject matter experts and technology… what better place to help spread the word?”
