The CIM Distinguished Lecturers program started in 1968 and has continuously provided a lineup of individuals who have shared their knowledge with the mining community for almost five decades.
Every year, the lecturers are elected by their peers through the CIM Awards program and hold the title for a complete season (September to June).
How it works
The Distinguished Lecturers program is offered to all CIM Branches, Technical Societies and Student Chapters. Universities can also request a lecture. CIM National defrays the cost of air travel while the requesting body covers local expenses (accommodation, transportation, etc.)
