International Cyanide Management Institute Elected a New Member to the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of the International Cyanide Management Institute has elected a new member to its Board, Ms. Joyce Rosalind Aryee, Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Chamber of Mines.

Ms. Aryee is a former Minister of State in Ghana. As the first woman to head any African Chamber of Mines, she draws her experience from over 30 years of public life, dealing with a wide range of issues including environmental, educational and communications.

Ms. Aryee was involved in Ghana’s democratization process as a non-cabinet minister at the National Commission for Democracy. For almost nine years, she was variously the Minister of Information, Education and Local Government. Ms. Aryee led several Government delegations to International Conferences including the Conference of Non-Aligned Ministers of Education and the UNESCO. In her career as a public relations executive, Ms. Aryee worked with Ghana’s two main environmental and standard regulatory bodies in the late 1980s and participated in international conferences on behalf of these bodies.

ICMI has been established to administer the Code, promote its adoption, evaluate its implementation, and manage the certification process.
