Governance modernisation

Following on from the governance changes that created the Advisory Council, the Executive Board and the four pillars of IOM3 in 2019 (Phases 1 and 2), the Trustees consulted members on the third phase of changes; a further modernisation of the Bye-laws. These changes were agreed by members at the 2021 Annual General Meeting, received approval from the Privy Council Office in August 2022 and came into force on 7 September 2022 . The main changes in this revision are:

  • A simpler, more streamlined membership grade structure 
  • Formally allowing for General Meetings to be held in a hybrid manner (ie both in person and online attendance)
  • Clarifying some issues around Executive Board members
  • Ensuring gender-neutral language is used throughout
  • Creating a new professional registration (“Qualified for Minerals Reporting”, or QMR) for members involved in mineral resources and reserves reporting

Phase 4 of our Governance Modernisation – a restructuring of our Technical Communities – came into effect in April 2022 following almost three years of discussion and consultation. We now have 22 Technical Communities covering the breadth of areas of IOM3 member interest, each of which contributes to the nine over-arching themes. This restructure seeks to maximise the contribution the Technical Communities and their Leadership Teams make to delivering benefits to members and to wider society.
