WAAIME Division

A rich history and bright future of giving

A Proud History: Over 100 Years of Service

In 1916, on Ladies Night at the American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers (AIME) meeting at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, the women passed the hat for money to assist the fighting men in the trenches of World War I. By 1917, 50 women formed the Woman’s Auxiliary to AIME and continued their charitable war efforts.  In 2008, WAAIME became a division of SME where they have continued their tradition of providing scholarships and supporting humanitarian causes.


A Passion for Service

The WAAIME objectives, as written by President Mrs. Lou Henry Hoover in her letter to her membership in February 1959, remain:

  • To render service to the country and to the community through all that pertains to the interest of the professions of Mining, Metallurgical and Petroleum Engineering. 

  • To promote philanthropic work and the interchange of ideas amongst its members. 

  • To devise and promote ways and means of procuring a fund and to maintain such fund for the purpose of assisting promising students to obtain a technical education in Mining, Metallurgical and Petroleum Engineering and their allied subjects.


More than a Division: A Community

The WAAIMEs have continued their philanthropic endeavors throughout the years, including: purchasing books for mining camps, building libraries, awarding scholarships, providing emergency funding for university students, and supporting programs for teacher’s
education.

All three have equal voting rights, with the Chair presiding.

The Executive Committee is selected by nominations by the WAAIME membership annually. If you would like to nominate an individual to serve on the Executive Committee, or would like more information, you may email the WAAIME Division Coordinator at WAAIME@smenet.org.

Local Sections in mining communities in the U.S., Peru, Chile and Mexico with each section governed by their local officers make up the WAAIME Division of SME. Each section, as well as the parent organization, has several committees, including: Scholarship, Membership, Operation Practices, and other special committees (such as the 100th Anniversary Committee).
