Conference Information

Old Mine

The National Association of Abandoned Mine Land Program's 40th Annual Conference will run Sunday evening, September 9th, through Wednesday the 12th. Registration is now open and welcome to all who have an interest in AML programs and reclamation projects.

This year we are especially pleased to welcome the National Association of State Land Reclamationists (NASLR) , which will hold it's 46th annual conference in conjunction with NAAMLP, harnessing the natural synergies between the two organizations, broadening our scope and presenting an additional opportunity for sponsor outreach.

Monday, September 10th, will have opening plenary session, technical presentations unique to abandoned mine land (AML) reclamation, and an awards banquet honoring National Reclamation Award winners. The technical sessions provide valuable exchanges of issues specific to reclamation specialists and have helped to make the conference a great value for all who attend. The networking opportunities between state employees, federal employees, engineers, contractors and suppliers are sure to be key components of the Conference.

Field trips on Tuesday, September 11th, will feature Virginia History at its finest; with over 400 years of history, discover why Virginia is an American history icon and the "Birthplace of a Nation".

We look forward to hosting this year's conference and look forward to seeing you in the Commonwealth.
