I am honored to serve as the President of the Alabama Mining Association (AMA), and I welcome this opportunity to tell you more about who we are and our vision for the future.

As a nonprofit trade association, AMA serves as the unified voice of Alabama’s mining industry. Our mission is to promote the safe and sustainable mining of the natural resources that strengthen our infrastructure and grow our great state’s economy.

Formerly the Alabama Coal Association, our new name and expanded mission builds on our organization’s nearly half-century history of effective advocacy. Membership in AMA is open to all sectors of our state’s mining industry as well as the vendors and service providers that support the mining industry.

AMA is more than just a new name. Our enhanced mission is a blueprint for proactively addressing today’s challenges while simultaneously anticipating future challenges and opportunities. Promoting safe and sustainable mining is our purpose and our priority.

My goal is to equip our members with the best resources available to thrive in an ever changing legislative, regulatory, and social environment.
