English Language Arts Council

Hexagon with orange background and letters ELAC

As the English Language Arts Council/UFT, we are the professional organization for all teachers of English Language Arts in elementary, middle and high schools in New York City. We invite all UFT members to enroll in our committee and participate actively in our varied programs.

ELAC organizes workshops, seminars, lectures, advice-sharing forums, film screenings, poetry readings and trips for both new and experienced teachers. Our meetings are held at UFT headquarters in Manhattan, on the fourth Thursday of each month of the school year with the exceptions of November, January and June. Meetings are open to all UFT members.

ELAC is also a proud affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of English, which you can also join as a member and purchase their periodicals and professional books at a discount.  You may also want to attend their local or national conventions.
