The Association of Union Constructors is pleased to present the 2014 TAUC Leadership Conference. Our theme for this year's conference is “Game Changers: Moving Our Industry from Ordinary to Exceptional”.

As the national trade association for the union construction industry, TAUC strives to create and deliver events that capture the energy of the dynamic union construction market and offer necessary opportunities for union contractors, industrial business owners and union representatives to learn and network with fellow union construction professionals. TAUC events are a means of advancing the union construction industry's collective interests in labor relations, education, safety and health, and work opportunities.

If you've never attended a TAUC Leadership Conference before, you can expect a full roster of high-quality speakers as well as numerous networking opportunities -- gourmet meals, a gala reception and dance, to name just a few. The conference also hosts the James J. Willis Craftsperson of the Year and Thomas J. Reynolds Safety Awards presentations, two of the industry's most prestigious award programs.

The 2014 TAUC Annual Union-Made Golf Tournament will be held on Thursday, May 8th. The golf tournament has been designed to allow participants to enjoy the day while displaying their varied golfing skills. All Ladies and Gentlemen registered for TAUC's Leadership Conference are eligible to enter the tournament and compete for prizes. TAUC's Golf Committee has elected to play a scramble format.

1. The entry for the 2014 TAUC Union-Made Golf Tournament is $210.00 per person, which includes green fees, cart fees, refreshments and a boxed lunch.

2. The Golf Committee will assign all foursomes. Since we will be allowed a "shotgun" start at 12:30pm SHARP, it is extremely important that all participants be at the course no later than 30 minutes prior to tee-off. Players need to check in at the Pro Shop to locate their assigned foursomes.

3. Prizes will be awarded to members of the winning foursome, 1st and 2nd runner-up foursomes and most honest foursome. In the event of a tie, scorecards will be compared as in match play, starting with a randomly selected hole. Individual prizes will also be awarded for various skills competitions.

4. Rental clubs are available at $65.00 and MUST BE RESERVED 2 WEEKS IN ADVANCE of the golf outing. Golfers are responsible for their own rental club payments as well as cigars and golf shop merchandise.

GOLF COURSE DRESS CODE:

Collared/Mock short sleeve shirts, Bermuda length shorts or non-denim trousers, and non-metal spikes or any flat rubber soled shoes are appropriate (no tee shirts, tank tops, cut offs or blue jeans).
