About NMA

The National Mining Association (NMA) is U.S. mining’s advocate in Washington, D.C. and beyond. The NMA is the only national trade organization that represents the interests of mining before Congress, the administration, federal agencies, the judiciary and the media—providing a clear voice for U.S. mining. The NMA’s mission is to build support for public policies that will help America fully and responsibly utilize its mineral and coal resources.

Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the NMA has a membership of more than 250 corporations and organizations involved in various aspects of mining. The NMA provides a forum for these diverse industry segments to be informed, heard and represented.

The NMA’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The NMA is committed to furthering our engagement with, support for and understanding of our community; supporting all team members in being themselves; and driving the ongoing diversification of our team. We believe that everyone has distinct characteristics, skills and backgrounds that make their experiences as members of the NMA team and the perspectives they bring to the office unique. We want to encourage and celebrate that uniqueness. Above all else, through our work, the ultimate goal is to maintain a welcoming culture for all. For us, “welcoming” means that all employees feel that they are accepted, respected and valued, that we have created a safe space for the discussion of and embracing differences, and that the entire team is invested in their success.

The NMA is proud to be a signatory of CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace, which is comprised of nearly 2,000 companies and organizations. As part of this commitment, we pledge to cultivate a workplace where diverse perspectives and experiences are welcomed and respected and where employees feel comfortable and encouraged to discuss diversity and inclusion.
