Distinguished Lecturer Program


Distinguished Lecturer Program


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 over 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.)

Member Spotlight

Marilyn Spink, CIM Distinguished Lecturer 2018-2019

CIM membership’s value for me over my career has been personal development – from developing leadership skills, feeding my hunger for learning, debating new ideas, understanding diverse perspectives, building relationships, coaching and being coached, and getting over my fear of public speaking!
