CEO’s editorial: Driving stronger connections

  • By Stephen Durkin FAusIMM, CEO, AusIMM

AusIMM is committed to being a more contemporary and more inclusive professional association. We are building a stronger external profile and connecting with leading brands and key supporters across the industry.

Our 125 Anniversary Thought Leadership Series, held in 12 locations, was delivered off the back of strong corporate support from our Signature Partners Monash University, PwC, Qantas and Rio Tinto. The series had further support from FLSmidth, CSIRO, IMARC, and the governments of South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia.

As an organisation, we are aligning ourselves with respected and influential partners.

We are building on these partnerships to help position the work of professionals in the resources sector as the best in the world at what we do. In 2021, Australia will host the World Mining Congress for the first time. The congress will be delivered by AusIMM in partnership with CSIRO, and we will welcome people from across the world of all backgrounds to Brisbane to showcase our world-class industry.

By joining forces with CSIRO, we are combining our proven track record of delivering outstanding international conferences with a highly respected organisation that has immense technical capability.

Our Thought Leadership Series and the World Mining Congress are both great examples of how strategically smart partnerships can deliver outstanding products and services and help build the credibility and reputation of the members we represent.

Together with our partners, we are sharing with the world the story of our talented resources professionals and their contribution to our economic prosperity and our communities.
