The Responsible Minerals Initiative holds an annual conference in conjunction with the RBA's Responsible Electronics meeting. This event brings together representatives of industry, government and civil society for updates, in-depth discussions and guidance on best practices to help companies make informed choices about responsibly sourced minerals in their supply chains. In addition, RMI hosts a Seminar Series on current topics and offers various webinars throughout the year.

The RBA and RMI annual member meetings and conferences in 2018 and 2019 will be held at the same venue as last year, the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California. In 2018 the events will be held October 29 – November 2 and in 2019 the dates are October 21 – 25.
