Organising Committee

AusIMM delivers world-class technical and leadership conferences to thousands of professionals each year. The success of our conferences is made possible through the hard work and dedication of our conference committee members.


The role of an AusIMM conference committee member is a voluntary one. AusIMM engages committee members who are subject matter experts relating to the conference topic and themes. We rely on our committee members to assist us in creating a high-end, technically sound conference program and identifying key industry speakers, sponsors and exhibitors.
