Each year, the AusIMM presents a series of awards that recognise excellence and acknowledge significant professional contribution to the resources industry and the AusIMM.
The awards program not only helps to raise the overall standard of professional practice, but it also sends a clear message to the broader community that AusIMM members are committed to the highest standards.
AusIMM members, and particularly our Communities of Interest (branches, chapters, committees, networks, taskforces and societies), are expected to play a leading role in both promoting and nominating professional colleagues who have demonstrated excellence in their field.
Nominations are open until 30 September for the 2018 Awards. The awards are structured as follows:
- Institute Medal
- President’s Award
- Honorary Fellowship
- Beryl Jacka Award
- Professional Excellence Awards
- New Professional Award
- G B O’Malley Medal
- Best Paper Prize
Institute or minerals sector service
