IOM3 hosts 2023 Annual General Meeting

The 2023 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining took place on 12 September in London

On the day, 29 members attended in person at 297 Euston Road, London, UK, with an additional 54 joining virtually. For the second time, under the new IOM3 Bye-laws, this AGM allowed for full participation online, building on the success of last year’s approach.

The AGM was chaired by IOM3 President Dr Kate Thornton CEng CSci FIMMM, with presentations from the CEO Dr Colin Church, Chair of Executive Board and Immediate Past President Neil Glover, Honorary Treasurer Thomas Hill and Chair of the Audit Committee Dr Rachael Ambury. Attendees received presentations about progress in 2022 and in 2023 as well as future plans, followed by a Q&A session. Topics raised included the international reach of the Institute, IOM3 conferences and events, with a suggestion for an IOM3 general conference, the recent review of the IOM3 medals and prizes, new arrangements for peer-reviewed journals, and IOM3 activities impacting on Government policy.  All agenda items were approved.

IOM3 President Kate Thornton said, ‘I really enjoyed seeing the positivity and engagement of the members who joined the AGM. It's clear that the future of IOM3 means a lot to its members. Some of the questions and suggestions were very interesting and will add value to the Institute going forward.
