IMA Outreach Committee


The mission of the Outreach Committee is to aid the IMA Council in identifying programs and activities that have an external focus with the objective to improve the visibility, understanding and appreciation of the IMA and its related commissions and Working groups.

The primary purpose of the Outreach Committee is to recommend and develop research activities, useful and educative outreach materials that will be used by IMA society members, mineralogists, and to a larger extent by Earth scientists including teachers. This will help the interest in Mineralogical Sciences and complementary Earth Sciences. Emphasis will be concentrated on developments of tools for mineralogists, including database development, interactivity between mineralogists through IMA websites development, and communication to members and non-members.
