Convention Info

The AFL-CIO is governed by a quadrennial convention at which all federation members are represented by elected delegates of our unions. Convention delegates set broad policies and goals for the union movement and every four years elect the AFL-CIO officers—the president, secretary-treasurer, executive vice president and vice presidents. These officers make up the AFL-CIO Executive Council, which guides the daily work of the federation.
