Committee Election 2017/2019

Good Day to all MVSA Members

The time has come for me to hand over the batten and allow a new generation of eager mine ventilation professionals to drive and build the reputation of ventilation professionals in Australia. Mine ventilation is an extremely important discipline that deserves the respect and the position in the mining industry which will allow the inflow of capable engineers with a career path in the ventilation discipline. As president of the MVSA I can assure you that the current committee has gone above and beyond moving towards this goal, some of the attempts have been extremely successful and others less so. Now is the time for you as a member to put up your hands and to use your experience to make a change. I would like to call upon members to make themselves available for selection for the 2017 to 2019 term, your discipline needs you. The aim is to have the nomination, voting and selection of the new MVSA committee finished before the Australian Mine Ventilation Conference to allow the president and the newly elected committee to communicate their mandate to the broader mine ventilation audience. As a representative of the current elect committee I would like to thank you in advance for your participation in the process and for the support you as our valued members have afforded us throughout our term.

The following steps need to be completed during the process:

  • Members make themselves available to serve on the MVSA committee for the next term. (To be finalised by 17 March 2017)
  • Members propose representatives to be considered for the ballet. (To be finalised by 31 March 2017)
  • MVSA committee approach all proposed members and confirm their ability and willingness to serve on the MVSA committee for the term 2017 till 2019. (To be finalised 14 April 2017)
  • MVSA send out the final ballet to all members for voting. (To be finalised by 28 April 2017)
  • Newly elected committee to be announced by the President of the MVSA (Current Vice President) and new committee to take over business and management of the Mine Ventilation Society of Australia. (To be finalised by 30 May 2017)


Kind Regards


Johannes Holtzhausen
