Published  • Updated

The period for declaring candidacy begins now.

In early 2020 UTLA members will be electing the UTLA citywide officers and members of the UTLA Board of Directors, which includes directors who serve a UTLA Area and directors who represent a special category of members. The complete list of offices is below. Together, the officers and board work with UTLA staff to carry out the mandates of the UTLA House of Representatives and help oversee the operation of the union. Elected members will serve a three-year term, from July 2020 to June 2023.

To ensure a ballot reaches you when voting begins in 2020, make sure that UTLA has your current contact information. If you’ve moved, update your information on utla.net.
