The 31st Annual Pittsburgh Coal Mining Institute of America/Pennsylvania Coal Alliance (PCMIA/PCA) Safety and Health Law Seminar will be conducted at the Hilton Garden Inn – Southpointe, in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania on Wednesday, October 25, 2023. The program is directed to safety and operation personnel at coal as well as metal and nonmetal mining operations in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Northern West Virginia, and Eastern Ohio. The PCMIA and PCA are pleased to host this annual meeting that brings together mine industry and regulatory agency representatives.
The Pittsburgh Coal Mining Institute of America (PCMIA) was formed in 1976 as a result of the merger of the Pittsburgh Coal Mining Institute and the Coal Mining Institute of America. Its objective is to encourage education and the growth of knowledge relating to coal mining including providing scholarships, to advance study and research into mining methods and problems, to promote safety and efficiency in the coal mining industry, to encourage closer cooperation between the coal industry and State and Federal government agencies, to disseminate information relating to the coal mining industry, and to otherwise advance the mutual interests of the members of this association.
The Pennsylvania Coal Alliance (PCA) is a trade association representing producers of bituminous coal and the manufacturers and suppliers of the industry in the Commonwealth. The Alliance is committed to promoting and advancing the Pennsylvania coal industry and the economic and social benefit to the employees, businesses, communities and consumers who depend on affordable, reliable and increasingly clean energy from coal. Through education, advocacy, legislative and regulatory efforts, PCA seeks to influence public policy, public opinion and the marketplace in support of the coal economy.
