Members of the NORA Mining Sector Council

The Council has two co-chairs, one selected by the NIOSH Program Manager and one a stakeholder representative. The NIOSH Co-Chair and the Assistant Mining Program Coordinator facilitate the work of the Council. Members attend meetings and are the core of the group. Corresponding members are kept informed of Council activities, have opportunities to provide input on topics to be discussed, and may join workgroups. Contact the NIOSH Co-Chair or NORA Coordinator with questions or comments or to volunteer.
