Members of the American Coal Council (ACC) and the Coal Trading Association (CTA) have approved the combination of the two organisations. The combined organisation will operate under the existing American Coal Council name and organisational structure and be managed by CEO Betsy Monseu and current ACC staff members.
Two CTA Board Directors have been added to the ACC Board of Directors: Steve Watson, Director – Trading and Origination with Arch Energy Resources, and Ginny Farrow, Portfolio Director – Coal with NRG Energy. Coal trading matters will be addressed by a new ACC Coal Trading Committee, which Watson will chair.
Regarding the merger, ACC CEO Monseu said: “The missions, activities and programmes of the ACC and CTA fit well together, and the two organisations have had a longstanding relationship to co-host the annual Coal Trading Conference. I thank the Boards and members of both organisations for their support of this combination, and the recognition of the value proposition it provides. I appreciate the contributions of CTA Executive Director Bob McLean and wish him well as he retires.”
