Chapter Chairs are the official representatives of UTLA members at school sites and special category groups and serve as vital links between the school and the broader union. In addition to keeping members apprised of union activities and policies and organizing school sites to action, Chapter Chairs also defend members’ professional rights and help resolve conflicts with administration.
Self-nominations are now open for site-based and Special Category Chapter Chairs for the 2023-2024 school year. Any UTLA member in good standing who has spent a majority of worktime within the chapter for at least two calendar months before submitting the self-nomination form can run for Chapter Chair. The deadline to self-nominate is May 5.
