The AusIMM Congress is a meeting held annually over three days with participants representing all the major parts of the AusIMM, such as Branches, Societies, New Professionals, Students, Directors, Chairs of Committees, Taskforces and Strategy Groups, CEO and AusIMM Management Team.

AusIMM Congress & AGM 2018 was held 20-21 April in Glenelg, SA, hosted by the Adelaide Branch.

Congress is an annual meeting of the AusIMM established by AusIMM's By-Laws. Congress is an opportunity for the Institute's leaders to work together, sharing information, experiences, opportunities and concerns with each other and with the AusIMM Board and CEO. Congress is tasked with endorsing each annual edition of the rolling Strategic Plan of the AusIMM and supporting the AusIMM Board in developing and implementing the future development of the Institute. Congress delegates are also responsible for electing the President if an election is required in that year. The AusIMM Annual General Meeting is also held in conjunction with Congress to 'receive and consider' the AusIMM financial accounts for the preceding year.

Further information regarding Congress is available in the Members Only area.
