PRIDE, PASSION AND RELEVANCE
The CIM has a proud history of over 120 years representing an exciting and vital industry. The CIM is made up of people who are passionate about our industry. Passion and pride are essential for the CIM and Canada to be a leader in the global mining industry but it is not enough. Ensuring that what we do in the CIM to promote the industry is relevant is key to leading, impacting, and ultimately making a difference where it counts.
This talk will focus on new and existing activities that the CIM at large is promoting that are aligned with the challenges in our industry. Part of this talk will engage the audience to participate in identifying what areas they think CIM should be engaging in to maintain relevancy.
