ISRM President's 2015 New Year Address

Dear ISRM Members,

2014 was a very positive year for the ISRM, a year where we achieved several goals proposed for the current Board’s tenure.

The Society has been steadily growing. Since last year one new National Group, Zimbabwe, has joined us and we have welcomed 450 new Individual Members that now total 7,673.

Technically, the Society is also in expansion as this year we have approved the 18th Technical Commission. Commissions of the ISRM are active and their work constitutes a major contribution to the rock mechanics community.

We have engaged ourselves in amplifying the benefits to members. The ISRM Digital Library at OnePetro is constantly being enlarged with papers from new conferences, and ISRM members are allowed up to 100 or 250 free downloads per year, depending on whether they are Individual or Corporate Members.

The book “ISRM Suggested Methods for Rock Characterization, Testing and Monitoring: 2007-2014", known as the “Orange Book”, was officially launched in October, during the ISRM International Symposium - ARMS 8, that took place in Sapporo, Japan.
