Starting a Chapter of WIM In Your Community Or At Your School
We want to help you start a new chapter either in your community or at your school. If you live in an area with mining industry, why not start a chapter? You will bring together like-minded individuals concerned about the future of mining, are anxious to educate themselves and others in their community on the benefits of mining as well support women and men in their mining careers.
Are you a student in a mining or mining related field?
A Student Chapter of WIM can be organized at any educational institution of higher learning that has an existing program in a technical area associated with minerals and mining, and where there is sufficient student enrollment and interest. Student Chapters are sponsored by a local WIM Chapter, which may or may not be in the same state as you.

Benefits In Starting a WIM Student Chapter
Community members interested in starting a new chapter should fill out the interest form and someone from WIM will contact you.
Student Chapters must have a Faculty Counselor as well as a WIM Chapter sponsor, both of whom will assist in bringing professionals and students together, and provide support and guidance.
The request for affiliation will be reviewed by the WIM sponsor and a recommendation regarding affiliation will be made to the WIM National Executive Board. The Student Chapter will be notified of the board’s decision.
