SME joins three mining organizations to form international partnership
The Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration (SME), along with three other mining organizations, have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish the Global Mineral Professionals Alliance (GMPA).
The partnership allows all participating societies to have access to education, public information, business networking and technical exchange opportunities worldwide.
“The mutually beneficial relationship of the GMPA partners will promote the minerals industry and advance the professional development of members across a wide range of disciplines and areas of expertise,” SME Executive Director David L. Kanagy said in a written statement.
The participating organizations are:
Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM)
Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM)
Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration Inc. (SME)
Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (SAIMM)
A one-year “Visiting Member” status will be available to organization members who are living and
working in a host society’s region. Visiting Members will have access to benefits such as technical workshops and meetings, print and online libraries, print and online publications and host member registration rates for conferences.
GMPA will eventually be offered to all professional and technical mining organizations across the globe.
