The Rocky Mountain Mining Institute has embraced the charter member's original purpose since its founding in 1912. These ideals have evolved into the present non-profit corporation. As a professional association comprised of individuals, and supported by companies, our mission is to:

Promote exceptional safety processes, behavior, performance, and results through training, benchmarking, and evaluation.

Advance the future of mining through education, environmental stewardship, professional development, and public relations.

Provide practical training and academic programs to the members, public, and other stakeholders.

Provide opportunities for professional networking, mentorship, and business development.

Recognize the importance and value the family plays in supporting the members of the mining industry.

The Board consists of the President, President-Elect, Administrative Liaison Officer, Chairman of the Advisory Board, Immediate Past President, three 3-year Directors, and three 2-year Regional Directors.
