Council Committees

External Relations Committee

The External Relations Committee (ERC) of the Council has the responsibility to raise public awareness to promote and support the WAIMM across West Africa and beyond.


The aim of the ERC is to present an effective public image of WAIMM and manage the Institute’s external relations activities to complement membership drive and professional recognition.


The ERC is also responsible for coordinating with other organizations for effective cooperation and affiliation towards knowledge sharing and networking.


The ERC reports to the Council and is chaired by a member of the governing council. It is composed of 35 members from the industry, academia and research consisting of both council and non-council members. At least 5 of the MC members must come from the governing council membership.
