Established in 1977, the conference is governed by a Board of Directors and co-sponsored by the Kentucky Labor Cabinet and the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development. The Kentucky Labor-Management Conference serves as the centerpiece of the state's effort to promote labor-management cooperation as an enhancement to economic development.  The event provides participants a relaxed atmosphere, apart from the work environment, that is conducive to positive, meaningful dialogue between labor and management.
 
The conference begins with two (2) days of interactive educational opportunities in which the participants are given the chance to talk directly with the presenters on a wide variety of topics of mutual interest to labor and management.  The final day of the conference is reserved for networking activities designed to team labor and management together in a recreational setting.  Input from participants over the years has indicated that many issues that may have resulted in conflict have been resolved in the relaxed atmosphere of the conference.
 
Other conference highlights include the presentation of the Labor and Management Awards, the Julian Carroll: Young Labor and Business Leader Awards, and the Labor-Management Scholarship Award.
