UTLA Standing Committees

UTLA has 44 Standing Committees that help formulate UTLA policy and contract proposals, hold educational conferences and field trips and sponsor scholarship awards. Committees reflect a wide range of interests and specialties, from physical education to National Board certification to school safety.

Membership in committees is open to all UTLA members. The best way to get involved is to attend one of the committee's regular meetings.
