The Royal School of Mines Association began life as the RSM Old Students' Dining Club and the first Annual Dinner was held in 1873 - 22 years after the founding of the Royal School of Mines. This makes the RSMA the oldest of the College's four Constituent College Associations.
The Association was formally inaugurated in 1913. Because RSM graduates moved on to various parts of the globe, branches were established in mining centres such as Australia, Canada, South Africa and Malaysia. Correspondents were also appointed for the countries where graduates were more dispersed so as to keep in touch with London and act as local contacts.
The Association continues to maintain links with the Royal School of Mines Union. The Union also has representatives on the RSMA Committee.
It is important to the Association Membership that there is continued sponsorship of the RSM student events as the Final year Dinner which is held jointly with the RSMU at the need of the summer term each year. This event is a wonderful opportunity to say goodbye to the year's graduates and wish them well before they go their ways. Many members also sponsor a student to attend the Association Annual Dinner.
We have also recently established the RSM Trust, incorporating the Overseas Travel Fund. The Trust is specifically designed to assist RSM students and provide students with loans for travel to vacation jobs abroad.
If you would like to join the electronic revolution for the RSMA, then we have both and groups, so feel free to join them!
