AusIMM Strategy

Information on the ongoing strategy, business plans and financials of the AusIMM are availble to members via the AusIMM Strategy page.


Congress is an annual meeting of the AusIMM established by AusIMM’s By-Laws (By-Laws 41-45). Congress is an opportunity for the Institute’s leaders to work together, sharing information, experiences, opportunities and concerns with each other and with the AusIMM Board and CEO. Congress is tasked with endorsing each annual edition of the rolling Strategic Plan of the AusIMM and supporting the AusIMM Board in developing and implementing the future development of the Institute. Congress delegates are also responsible for electing the President if an election is required in that year. The AusIMM Annual General Meeting is also held in conjunction with Congress to ‘receive and consider’ the AusIMM financial accounts for the preceding year.

For further information regarding Congress is available in the Members Only section of the website.
