AUSTIN, Texas - The Union-Affiliated Contractors (UAC) held its Unity Conference 2004 at the Lakeway Inn Resort.

The meeting featured speakers and sessions, including a presentation from Kirk Alter titled "Good to Great: Taking Your Company to the Next Level." Based on the book by Jim Collins, the presentation provided insight into companies that made and sustained the transition to high-performing companies. Contractors, union leaders, and association executives discussed their ideas for applying these concepts to their organizations.

Speaker Bill Ecklund presented "Fiduciary Responsibility," which covered current strategies and best practices for those who serve as trustees and multi-employer funds and benefit plans.

Also at the meeting, UAC elected Robert J. "Bud" Riestenberg, Flo-Rite Inc. (Riviera Beach, Fla.), for a two-year term as chairman of the UAC trustees. Tom Gent, AMSCO Mechanical Inc. (Granite City, Ill.), was confirmed as vice chairman.

The following individuals were elected or re-elected to three-year terms as UAC trustees:

Ray Hefner, Plumbing Industry Council of St. Louis; Herb Greenberg, WDF Inc./Green Mechanical Corp. (Mount Vernon, N.Y.); Hugh Kelleher, Greater Boston PHCC (Boston); Stewart O'Brien, City of New York ACP (New York); and Robert J. "Bud" Riestenberg.
