TRTR is an affiliation of those associated with the operation, management and regulation of non-power reactors. TRTR serves as a forum to share useful information with respect to operation, maintenance and utilization of such facilities. An annual meeting is held in the fall of each year, and is usually located at the facility of the current Chair. TRTR presents a common voice, representing all non-power reactors especially on regulatory and funding issues. TRTR also performs peer review audits of research reactors on the request of the facility to be audited. In 1997 TRTR was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) corporation. Further information on the purposes and organization of TRTR can be found in the articles of incorporation and the by-laws.

A listing of the current Executive Committee and a brief history of TRTR including past Chairs and meeting locations are available.
