President’s editorial: Sharing AusIMM’s Future Directions

  • By Colin Moorhead FAusIMM(CP), President, AusIMM

It is an exciting time for AusIMM. In the past 12 months we have appointed CEO Stephen Durkin, stabilised the organisation’s operations and finances, and set our Board-approved strategy titled ‘Future Directions’.

In April and May, we have taken our Institute ‘on the road’ to celebrate our 125-year anniversary and share the work underway on Future Directions.

Our journey started in Adelaide for Congress 2018 and the launch of our AusIMM Thought Leadership Series. The energy at these events has made it clear to me that we are on the right track with Future Directions. We are working closely with corporate partners, government and industry employers to have a stronger external profile and position ourselves as the Trusted Voice of resources professionals.

While we are making good progress, there is more work to be done. The AusIMM Board continue to work closely with the Management Team to ensure our key projects are carefully planned, closely monitored and risks are managed.

It has been fantastic to catch up with so many people at Congress, our AusIMM Awards Dinner and our Thought Leadership Series. These events have reinforced my belief that AusIMM’s strength is our people. Our professionals are the foundation of the Institute, and will be the key to our ongoing success.
