Qualified Professional
Membership Class

MMSA has always been a cohesive group of senior people from the mineral industry. The Society is dedicated to increasing public awareness and understanding about mining and why mined materials are essential to modern society and human well being. MMSA members are satisfied to know they are doing something worthwhile for the mineral industry and their profession. 

MMSA welcomes new members who meet the qualifications, have made contributions to the mining industry, and have a proven professional background. The new new class of membership, known as Qualified Professional, or QP Member is a further enhancement and service offered to the Mining Industry and is available to current and new members.  This new membership class will authorize a QP member to “review, approve and certify; technical or scientific reports and disclosures for public or regulatory purposes.”  The QP pledges to uphold the ethical standards of the Society.

Professionals who feel that they have something to offer MMSA and the Mining Industry are invited to apply for membership. The Information and FAQ for prospective members provides additional information about the QP application and approval process. Filling out and submitting the application form is the first step in the process to become either a Member or a Qualified Professional Member
