In the midst of the global pandemic, it has been decided by the IAM Executive Council that it is in the best interest of the membership to postponed this years 40th Grand Lodge Convection, which was originally from September 6 till the 11, to September 12 to the 17 of 2021 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Resort.
In the words of our IAM International President, Robert Martinez:
“This decision was not made lightly and our Executive Council shares in the disappointment we all have about not being able to join together as one union at our convention this year …, I want to especially thank General Vice President Gary R. Allen, the Western Territory and the 2020 Host Committee for all the work they have done to prepare for this convention.”
“I am also extremely grateful for our membership’s patience as we continue to navigate this extraordinary time and the challenges it poses to our union,” said Martinez. “For now, your health is our paramount concern, but I very much look forward to the convention in 2021 and continuing the democratic traditions of our union. Stay safe, stay strong, stay united—together, in solidarity, we shall overcome.”
