:: Jean Vavrek Appointed Executive Director of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum

Howard Stockford, President of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Jean Vavrek to the position of Executive Director of the Institute, effective August 18, 2003, replacing Mr. Yvan Jacques, who is retiring after more than 10 years of loyal service. Mr. Jacques will continue as a Special Adviser to CIM until the end of 2003.

Mr. Vavrek brings over twenty years of CIM membership and practical experience in the mining and forestry industries and has been an enthusiastic volunteer in the organization, having served on the executive of the Maintenance/Engineering Division (most recently as Chairman) and the joint Bulletin and Central Publications Committee, of which he has been Chairman since 2000. He also served as a member of CIM's 2001-2004 Strategic Planning Task Force. Jean is well qualified to provide sound leadership and management skills to CIM and to ensure the relevance of services to its members in the future.

Mr. Vavrek's varied experience in the industry and on CIM Council will be of great benefit to CIM. We wish him the best of success and ask for the continued support of all individual Members, Divisions, Societies and Branches, to help him focus the organization on the challenges of delivering high-quality services to a rapidly changing industry.
