CEO’s editorial: Bringing our strategy to life

  • By Stephen Durkin FAusIMM, CEO, AusIMM

AusIMM’s ‘Future Directions’ strategy is a clear and measured approach to build the AusIMM into a world-leading peak body for resources professionals.

AusIMM members are starting to see tangible results with our relaunched Bulletin magazine, our new conference branding and a stronger social media presence. We have also increased our engagement with industry and likeminded groups including ATSE, AICD and METS Ignited.

Two further examples showcase our commitment to having a greater external profile as the Trusted Voice of resources professionals.

At our recent Thought Leadership Series, more than 1000 members across Australia and New Zealand heard the stories of the remarkable people who, over 125 years, have made up our Institute. Members also engaged with over 50 industry leaders who discussed the workforce of the future and how technology, innovation, collaboration and globalisation will all enhance our industry.

We have also established our new Diversity and Inclusion Council. This Council will ensure that the AusIMM welcomes all professionals in the resources sector, no matter their qualification or background. A diverse industry can help us better connect to the communities we work in, and embracing a broader range of perspectives will make us a richer organisation.

These two initiatives are decisive actions aimed at AusIMM leading the big conversations influencing our industry’s future.

It has been a privilege to meet so many members in our anniversary year and hear first-hand your support for the work underway at the AusIMM. This work will better position us to represent the resources professionals who are shaping the future of our sector and society.
