The AusIMM South West WA Branch also invites you to attend a Branch Committee meeting (totally optional) to see how the Branch functions and to be part of the decision process that gives our Branch the ‘edge’ in delivery of professional development and networking services.

Maybe you would like to take this opportunity to gain strategy and governance experience and potential career opportunities at a corporate or ESG level.
