Our mission is to provide effective leadership for the coal industry, ultimately enhancing the ability of the Kentucky coal industry to compete in domestic and world coal markets. Our membership represents both Eastern and Western Kentucky operations that mine coal through surface and underground methods. This diversity helps us build a consensus approach in problem solving and proactively works to resolve the complex issues facing the coal industry.
