47th Annual Conference

About us

Since 1978, the National Labor and Management Conference has been a forum for the critical issues of the moment affecting both Labor and Management. We feature the leading voices of the Labor community along with new, exciting voices with new ideas. The forum consistently presents timely and significant issues from the perspectives of management, labor and neutrals, and provides stimulating exchanges of views on, and approaches to, labor relations.


  • Trustees and directors of multi-employer health, welfare and pension funds
  • Fund administrators
  • Union leadership
  • Senior corporate management
  • Labor lawyers, fund counsel and advisors
  • Labor relations professionals from both labor and management
  • …and more!

The National Labor & Management Conference is recognized as one of the most outstanding labor & management programs in the United States. We anticipate over 600 participants at this year’s conference.
