Only bona fide functioning organizations affiliated with the North Carolina State AFL-CIO will be seated at the Convention. Only members in good standing of an­­­­ affiliated organization will be seated as delegates. For local unions, monthly dues must be paid through June 2024 by the start of the convention for delegates to be seated. For union councils, including central labor councils, annual dues for 2024 must be paid.


Sending a full delegation is the #1 way to show your support for a successful Annual Convention, but registration fees alone do not cover the full cost to hold these events. We created a sponsorship program so pro-union vendors and allies can contribute to making each convention more educational and inspirational for our attendees. Now affiliates wishing to do so can become official convention sponsors as well! 

Affiliate sponsors will get: 

  • Priority access to the banquet buffet line.
  • Additional reception & banquet tickets for their guests.
  • Special recognition during the program and in printed materials.
  • If your union would like to become a convention sponsor with a donation of $500, $1000, $1500, $5000, or in any amount, contact [email protected] for details.


RESOLUTIONS must be submitted at least 21 days in advance – so by Wednesday, August 28th – but sooner is better!
