New digital developments for IQ members
Institute of Quarrying and QMJ Group launch new online platform and digital content for members
THE Institute of Quarrying (IQ) and QMJ Group have launched a new online platform offering dedicated IQ content for audiences in the quarrying and related industries.
The hugely popular Agg-Net website has been extended to include the new monthly IQ Branch Blog, which features a round-up of everything happening in the featured region including the latest news and events and information on how to get involved.
Also featured on the Agg-Net IQ pages is the monthly President’s Column from Quarry Management magazine, as well as a special area for the IQ Academy. The IQ Academy page lists all the upcoming courses for those who want to gain further knowledge or training as part of their CPD programme.

In addition, as part of these new developments, IQ members can now access digital copies of Quarry Management through the QMJ app for free. Benefits of this include access to the magazine before the printed edition arrives through the post, plus the fact the all back copies of the digital magazine (to March 2014) are fully searchable, making it much easier to find or refer back to useful and/or important articles.
James Thorne, the new chief executive officer of the Institute of Quarrying, said: ‘In this our centenary year it’s important to make sure that we continue to deliver value for members. By embracing new technologies we are offering choice as to how members choose to engage and communicate with us.’
Another benefit to IQ members of the QMJ app is that the username and password to access the free content is the same as their details used for the IQ CPD app. The IQ CPD app allows members to easily record and view their CPD activities as part of their membership requirements.
To download the QMJ app, search for ‘QMJ’ on the App Store or Google Play Store. For more information on how to install the QMJ app, visit: Quarry Management App. The IQ CPD app can be found by searching ‘IQ CPD’.
