There are 32 district coordinators, each serving you in a community school district. They coordinate paraprofessional issues with the UFT's district representatives. The chapter also has paraprofessional representatives at some schools or sites or represent you.

Chapter members elect officers every three years. All officers, executive board members, borough coordinators and district coordinators serve as delegates to your union's Delegate Assembly, the union's highest policy-making body.
