Civil Military Cooperation
Civil Military Co-operation (CIMIC)
CIMIC (Civil Military Co-operation) is a Universal Access Committee (UAC), which operates within a mandate and the CIOR by-laws in terms of Art. 126.96.36.199.
The Committee must provide advice from CIOR’s perspective, on the best utilization of Reservists within the scope of CIMIC, and act as a think tank and forum for discussions regarding Reserve and CIMIC matters. The Committee acts as a group of subject matter experts (SMEs) and must be prepared to give advice to all relevant stakeholders.
The first CIMEX was held in 2012. The CIMIC Committee hosts an annual table-top Civil-Military Exercise (CIMEX) prior to the CIOR Summer Congress. CIOR CIMEX is recognized as an official exercise and can be found in NATO Military Exercise Program (MTEP).
