PDAC Volunteers - The Lifeblood of An Association

Interview with James Siddorn
Wednesday, June 1, 2016
First presented: 
Core: The Voice of Mineral Exploration

The Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) would not exist without volunteers. That’s fact. The generous time and efforts donated by industry professionals are as important today as they were 84 years ago when the association was founded.

James Siddorn, President of SRK Consulting Canada, is one of the more recent volunteers. He is the Chair of the Convention Planning Committee and sits on the Board of Directors.

Check out page 21 of the Summer 2016 edition of Core: the Voice of Mineral Exploration for an interview with James on why he became a volunteer and what he gets out of it.
