October 3, 2010, Washington, D.C. (Coal Geology): The National Mining Association (NMA) board of directors elected a new slate of officers for the two-year term 2010-2012. The action came at the association’s Board of Directors and Annual Meeting of Members held in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 24.
New officers are:
- Chairman Greg Boyce, chairman and CEO, Peabody Energy
- Vice Chairman Frank McAllister, chairman and CEO, Stillwater Mining
- President Hal Quinn, president and CEO, NMA
- Treasurer Roger Roberts, senior vice president, NMA
- Secretary Bruce Watzman, senior vice president, NMA
- Asst. Secretary Katie Sweeney, general counsel, NMA
“NMA is fortunate to have executives of this caliber devoting their time and energies to the association,” said NMA President and CEO Hal Quinn. “They make an extraordinary contribution to NMA and to U.S. mining. Gary Goldberg, NMA’s outgoing chairman and president and chief executive officer of Rio Tinto Minerals, exemplifies the long tradition of service NMA has enjoyed from its volunteer leadership. The board and staff of NMA deeply appreciate Gary’s many contributions over the last two years.
“NMA remains a robust organization because of the active participation of our membership and the service of our officers and board members. At a time when Americans are so concerned about their economic future, mining continues to provide jobs for more than 560,000 Americans and to meet the nation’s needs for affordable and reliable energy and the materials that are essential to our economic and national security.”
