IAM Postpones 40th Grand Lodge Convention
The IAM released a notice advising that the 40th IAM Grand Lodge Convention has been rescheduled for September 12-17, 2021, in San Diego, at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel. The notice also outlines certain procedures for the election of delegates and alternate delegates.
Most importantly, the letter outlines procedures for the election of delegates and alternate delegates. Specifically:
Lodges that have not yet chosen their delegates may choose to postpone delegate selection until the spring of 2021. Alternately, lodges may choose to proceed with the delegate selection as outlined in Official Circular 874 (also attached hereto). Whichever approach local lodges take, the IAM Constitutional rules about members’ eligibility to serve as delegates at the time of the Convention continue to apply. Note that if a lodge decides to elect its delegates this year, those delegates must continue to serve as delegates to the 2021 Convention, so long as they choose to do so and remain eligible to serve.
“Clearly, this was a difficult decision to make and was not made lightly. However, the health and safety of our members and delegates are paramount,” said TCU President Bob Scardelletti
