Two of the featured speakers included General Kevin P. Byrnes, commanding general for the United States Army Training and Doctrine Command, and Harold D. Stratton Jr., chairman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Earning 2003 Meritorious Service Awards were Brett Austin, chairman of the Direct Heating Division; Robert Ramistella, chairman of the Hydronics Institute Division; and James T.
