Upcoming Meeting

2020 Summer Trade Seminar has been changed to The first STS Virtual Conference

The Officers and Directors of The Coal Institute have been working diligently to come up with a plan to keep our membership engaged and to also continue to provide funding for the education scholarships that remain a part of our core mission. As The Coal Institute is a non-profit organization, we rely on revenue from the annual Summer Trade Seminar to help provide funds for our scholarship program. 

We are pleased to offer the first ever Coal Institute virtual conference to be held on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at 9:30 am EDT.  During the conference you will hear from coal producers, utility buyers and other market experts.  Presentation topics will include COVID-19 impacts on the coal and power generation markets, natural gas forecasts and an early look at the November elections.  Conference attendees will be able to participate in a Q&A session after each speaker.  See the schedule of events below:

The registration fee for the conference will only be $25 per person.  All proceeds from registration fees will go directly to the Coal Institute’s scholarship and education fund.  Registration is open and available by clicking  HERE  or the online registration link at the bottom of this page.  Registered attendees will be automatically entered into a drawing for giveaways at the conclusion of the conference. 

To help cover the cost of the virtual conference, we are looking for corporate sponsors at various levels.  Once the conference costs are covered, all sponsorship fees will also be donated directly to the Coal Institute’s Scholarship and Education Fund.  Sponsorship opportunities are available as part of the registration process.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact Lee Ann Cox at leeann@thecoalinstitute.org
