Environmental and Public Protection Cabinet
Labor-Management Conference to remain at Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park
FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 16, 2006) – The board of directors of the Kentucky Labor-Management Conference voted unanimously today to hold the 2006 meeting at Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park. The vote reverses a decision by the board last week to move this year’s conference to northern Kentucky.
The 12-member board, appointed by the secretaries of the Environmental and Public Protection Cabinet and the Economic Development Cabinet, made the change after a lengthy discussion of several issues.
“Since our meeting last week, members of the board have received comments from labor and management leaders across the state regarding moving the conference,” said Michael Donta, the labor co-chair of the board. “The vote reflects some of the comments we have received.”
The board discussed facilities required for the conference and the date the facilities in northern Kentucky were available. Traditionally held in September, the 2006 conference would have been moved to October based on the availability of meeting space.
“We have decided to survey the attendees of this year’s conference as well as our constituents to receive input on future regional conferences and the annual conference,” said Tim Mosher, the management co-chair of the board.
The 2006 conference will be held September 12-14.
The board is composed of six labor representatives and six management representatives and receives administrative support from both cabinets.
