The first-ever IAM Unity and Growth Conference, “Building Our Future Sector by Sector,” will be held from Sunday, August 20 to Thursday, August 24 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel (1 Park Blvd., San Diego, CA 92101).
The 2023 IAM Unity and Growth Conference will train, educate and inspire IAM officers, staff, activists, and other leaders to organize new members in all sectors and continue to embrace and strengthen the diversity of our union. Morning plenary sessions will feature dynamic speakers and panels, while afternoon breakout sessions will include instruction on fresh organizing tactics, and how communications, strategic research, legal matters, and diversity can help grow our union.
Breakout industry sectors include:
- Aerospace and Service Contract Act
- Manufacturing and Shipbuilding

Delegates will also convene in individual industrial sector meetings to discuss, review, and produce a proactive, strategic organizing plan. Each sector will give a report to the full conference.
