Dear UTLA Leader,

We are excited to announce that the 2017 UTLA Leadership Conference, “Ready to Fight, for our Schools, Communities and Profession” will be held Friday to Sunday, July 28th – July 30th, 2017 at the Westin Bonaventure in Downtown Los Angeles.    This Leadership Conference will continue to help UTLA leverage our power and tip the scales to our advantage as we further organize, organize, organize.  If you are a chapter chair leader – it is critical that you attend the Leadership Conference.  Plans are underway as we finalize the speakers, workshops and general sessions to fully prepare us for the next steps in the Schools LA Students Deserve Campaign.  We are UTLA, the second largest local union in the nation, and as we know what happens in Los Angeles reverberates across the nation. Let's continue the movement- July 28th – July 30th as we organize for power in the 2017-18 school year!

Please see the fee schedule below.  Keep in mind that housing, meals, workshops and the conference are included at no extra charge.  Board of Directors, Chapter Chairs, Co-Chairs, Vice Chairs and School Representatives are eligible for the maximum reimbursement of $125 ($25 if you are not staying at the hotel), if all mandatory meetings and workshops are attended.  If the Chapter Chair is unable to attend, we must receive a statement in writing indicating who will be the replacement for their online registration to be processed.  House of Representatives members, Committee Chairs and Steering Committee members are not eligible for a credit.

If you are eligible for a credit, you will be required to submit your name badge at the end of the conference with all 5 stickers that you will receive at each mandatory session.  A credit of $125 ($25 if not staying at the hotel) will be applied to your balance before your credit card is charged.  All credit cards will not be charged until after the conference.    You will be charged the full amount if you do not cancel (in writing) by July 15th or are a “no show”.  Contact Rosa Beasley at rbeasley@utla.net if you have any questions or concerns regarding payment for the conference. 

COMPLETE YOUR REGISTRATION AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.  SPACE AND SINGLE OCCUPANCY IS LIMITED AND WILL BE ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVE BASIS. THERE WILL NOT BE ANY ON-SITE REGISTRATION.

If you are selecting your own roommate, please make sure they request you as well.  This helps to eliminate conflict when the requested roommate indicates another choice or no choice at all.  If this procedure is not observed and/or if your roommate cancels, you may be assigned to a room with someone else.  UTLA reserves the right to inform you of your roommate prior to the conference.  Please do not attempt to request a specific room, room location or suite type.  We have no control over which room you will be assigned.

Your UTLA leadership team looks forward to standing together with you in this fight.
