Changes to Technology Communities Board
Following the recent decision by Keith Harrison to step down as Chair of the TCB Board in June 2018, IOM3 Trustees approved Mike Clinch as the new Chair.
Speaking of taking up his new appointment Mike said, ‘This is an exciting time to be in materials. We have an important role to play in solving many of the planet’s grand challenges but we will only make genuine, sustainable progress by working together and by being prepared to break down traditional barriers. The new TCB was set up with a primary objective to promote greater multidisciplinary engagement between different areas of the Institute. I am looking forward to working with our new Strategic Advisors and the many excellent groups within the broader materials, minerals and mining community to help deliver IOM3 goals and raise the profile of our essential and dynamic industry.’
The board will now consult on nominations for Vice Chair. IOM3 would like to thank Keith for his contribution to the Institute over many years and wish him all the best for the future.
