Being a member of WMC has its advantages: connect and network with other professionals in your field, help facilitate the creation of a community of members who can work together to educate members of Congress about our professions in the mining industry, help promote & protect our jobs in the mining industry, and get involved with WMC to make it a better and stronger organization.
