CIM Lunch Presentation Oct. 24th: Four decades, Four Continents, Four Copper Operations – a Personal Perspective on Constraints

The upcoming Canadian Institute of Management’s (CIM) lunch presentation will take place on Wednesday, October 24 at 11 AM at Room 100, 615 Booth St., Ottawa. An optional lunch buffet will be available for members and non-members for $10 (free for students) after the presentation.

Mr. Eltringham has been selected as a CIM Distinguished Lecturer for his innovative thinking and problem-solving techniques that brought the field of copper smelting to new levels of safety, production and development. The last forty years are reviewed using four different copper operations, on four continents, as examples of the changes in thinking approaches the industry has developed. The prioritization of effort and resources is a skill that has developed continuously and necessarily at an ever increasing rate. The copper smelting procedures of Zambian Copperbelt (Africa), Kennecott Mine (North America), Escondida Mine (South America) and Olympic Dam mining centre (Oceania) will be explained and compared to demonstrate how technology, luck, shrewd business acumen and a vision can produce outstanding results and be a great source of learning about the “game” of mining.

Please RSVP by October 22nd to Aartee Khandelwal, CIM Facility Coordinator by email (akhandel@nrcan.gc.ca) or via phone (613-995-4146). For members travelling by car, paid parking can be found on Booth St. or a parking lot is available on Beech St./Rochester for approximately 5$.

New ASHRAE Student Chapter at Carleton

Please Note: this meeting has been resheduled for MONDAY OCTOBER 17TH at 6:00pm in SGRC (room 5326 Mackenzie). For more details click here

Don’t know what ASHRAE is? Don’t worry I didn’t either. ASHRAE is an acronym for “American Society of HVAC Engineers” and they specialize in smart building design, LEED and HVAC. There are a couple of students looking to start a student chapter at Carleton.

The purpose of the Carleton student chapter is to get students to purchase a student membership and come out to ASHRAE’s Ottawa Valley monthly chapter meetings. At these meetings students have the amazing opportunity to network with a lot of big companies. During the meetings, students will be provided with a meal and a lecture on hot topics in the industry. Having a Carleton ASHRAE membership means members do not pay for these meals or the event. The price of the membership is yet to be decided but it will be somewhere between 20$-50$ and will last for the entire year.

Katie and Laura (the two students who are spearheading this initiative) will be hosting a quick 20 minute info meeting on OCTOBER 12th at 5:30pm in SGRC (that’s the Student Group Resource Room, it’s on the 5th floor of Makenzie and to get there you have to take the stair between the 2nd and 3rd blocks). If you are interested in ASHRAE and becoming a member, then I encourage you to go to the meeting. Networking, a lecture and a meal is a pretty good deal for any student! For additional information email Katie and Laura at ashrae.carleton@gmail.com
