The Association of Union Constructors is pleased to present the 2019 TAUC Leadership Conference. The leadership conference will be held April 30-May 3, 2019 at the Windsor Court Hotel located at 300 Gravier St. in New Orleans, LA.

We encourage our members and affiliates to attend this year's conference to take advantage of the numerous educational and networking opportunities.

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 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, 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 Award, Thomas J. Reynolds Safety Awards, and the first ever Joseph R. La Rocca Project of the Year Award presentations, three of the industry's most prestigious award programs.

The 2019 TAUC Annual Union-Made Golf Tournament will be held on Thursday, May 2nd. Registration for this event includes: 18 holes of golf, cart, custom golf balls, swag bag, lunch, and various opportunities to win prizes for longest drive, closest to the pin, etc.
