History of Southeastern Building Trade Conference

The Southeastern Building Trade Conference is an umbrella organization uniting building trade unions from the southeastern states: Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. Formed in 1966 by resolution "to gain control of the many construction jobs going open shop," the organization was quite active through the mid to late 1970's. Membership and activity began to decline with the last organized conference in 1982. A conference was held in 1986 to determine the revitalization efforts needed to get the organization active again.

The Executive Board consisted of a representative from each state, an Executive Vice President, President, and Secretary Treasurer. In 1966, the first Executive Board President was Robert Price. G. B. Caudelle served as Secretary Treasurer, a position he would hold until 1981. Executive Board meetings were held between one and four times each year. Conference meetings were bi-annual and held over two days at various locations throughout the participating states.
