The WAIMM groups provide the relevant platform for skill enhancement and knowledge sharing where specific professionals in the core sectors of the mining and petroleum industry meet, network and discuss pertinent and pressing specific issues in their field of practice.
This grade of WAIMM membership is eligible for individuals working in the mining and petroleum industry but do not have the requisite qualification for admission into the Member category.
I admire WAIMM’s vision of promoting exceptional professional development, world class-networking and facilitating knowledge transfer among professionals across the mining sector in the West African sub-region. The vision provides excellent direction and value driven principles for the transformation of industry performance. I am happy to benefit from most of the capacity development programs including the annual conferences, seminars and the outstanding leadership training that WAIMM continues to provide. You can also benefit from these and many more opportunities by simply joining WAIMM and become one of the most efficient industry players our time.
