Executive Board

The Executive Board of the Chicago Teachers Union is comprised of the elected officers, committee chairs, appointed members and union staff. It meets each month and is charged with overseeing the work of the union. One of its main tasks is to propose the agenda for each monthly House of Delegates meeting. The E. Board also votes to recommend Items for Action at the House of Delegates, many of which are put forth from the union’s standing committees and their subcommittees.

Voting Members

The voting members of the Executive Board are enumerated under Article V, Sec. 1 of the CTU Constitution:

The elective officers of the Union shall be: President, Vice President, Recording Secretary, Financial Secretary, six Trustees, three Area Vice Presidents, and a Functional Vice President for each one thousand Union members, or major fraction thereof, in each of the following groups: elementary teachers, high school teachers, and career service employees, provided that each of these groups shall have at least one Vice President. The membership in good standing for December 31 preceding an election shall be the determining figure.

Below are listed the Trustees, Area Vice Presidents and Functional Vice Presidents (FVPs). The four major officers can be seen on the About CTU page of this website.
