Leadership Ballot Coming in Chesapeake Newsletter

Anne Arundel Sierra Club executive committee elections are coming up, but there’s an important change in voting procedures this year.

While candidates are listed (on page 5) in this newsletter, the Anne Arundel group’s Sierra Log, the actual ballot will be coming to you in the Maryland Chapter’s tabloid newsletter, the Chesapeake. This new system follows the move to online distribution of the Sierra Log – what you’re reading right now – to save the increasing postage and production costs of a print edition, around $4,000 per year.

We have a lot of members’ email addresses but nowhere even approaching all of them, so electronic balloting is out of the question if everyone is to have the opportunity to help choose group leadership. In contrast, the Chesapeake reaches virtually every single Anne Arundel Group member.

So, please read through the candidate statements here; check them again when the next issue of the Chesapeake hits your mailbox; feel free to write in your name or that of any other Sierran you think would be equipped and willing to serve, and of course be sure to return your marked ballot as instructed in the Chesapeake.

Ten members serve on the executive committee, in staggered two-year terms.

Remember, we’re an all-volunteer group, so we always need people to step up and help us do the group’s work. If you’d like to know more about the election process, or the executive committee’s work, call chair David Prosten at 410-703-0847, or email dprosten@yahoo.com.
