Help UPEA Help You By Seeking a District Office

Do you want to become more involved in the Utah Public Employees Association (UPEA)? Nominations for district leadership positions are coming up.

UPEA is a member-run organization. The dedication and passion of our members empowers the organization to create change. Come get involved in district leadership and help facilitate communication and represent public employees’ interests on the State Advisory Council and at the annual General Council.

The Association is organized into districts; each district has a District Board consisting of a chairman, vice chairman, secretary, treasurer and occasionally past chairman. General members of the district elect district officers to serve three-year terms when elected vice chairman and one-year terms when elected secretary or treasurer.
