To be the premier Mine Surveying organisation, representing all Mine Surveyors in Australia.
Our organisation exists to promote and improve the science and practice of Mine Surveying.
- To provide mentoring and guidance to our members
- To represent the Mine Surveying community to the regulators
- To raise the profile and sustainability of Mine Surveying
- To provide a forum for all Mine Surveyors for professional development and networking

Our key focus areas for 2024 will be centred around:
- Board structure and governance

The workshop resulted in 44 action items to support the focus areas for 2024.These are tracked & updated in our board meetings.
The workshop provided a good reset for what we need to achieve in 2024 and I would like to thank Chris Moy for facilitating and offering up his extensive previous experience with AIMS.
