2011

Each year, the Maryland Chapter holds elections for “at large” delegates to the chapter executive committee. This winter, the members of the chapter will elect three people to serve two-year terms. The chapter’s nominating committee invites all interested members of the Maryland Chapter to enter the race for these positions. We are looking for at least six people who can bring management skills, a firm commitment to protecting the environment, and a willingness to invest their time and energy for the next two years to help manage the chapter.

Seeking Candidates for Chapter Excom

Each year, the Maryland Chapter holds elections for “at large” delegates to the chapter executive committee. This winter, the members of the chapter will elect three people to serve two-year terms. The chapter’s nominating committee invites all interested members of the Maryland Chapter to enter the race for these positions. We are looking for at least six people who can bring management skills, a firm commitment to protecting the environment, and a willingness to invest their time and energy for the next two years to help manage the chapter.

While experience on a group’s executive committee would be helpful, it is not necessary. Your work and life experience, and your common sense, are equally important ingredients. If you would be willing to serve for a two-year term, please submit a brief biography, no longer than 400 words, which describes your qualifications, your experience, and what you believe you can contribute. Send it to the nominating committee c/o Laurel Imlay, 7338 Baltimore Ave, College Park, MD 20740, by e-mail to laurel.imlay@sierraclub.org, or by fax at 301-277-6699. You may also send a letter to nominate another member in good standing.

Please respond by October 30, 2011. The nominating committee will review the qualifications described in the biographies, attempt to bring forward a slate of six candidates, and report the slate of candidates to the executive committee.  The candidates’ statements and a ballot will be published in the winter issue of Chesapeake

For additional information and a sample biography, please contact Laurel Imlay at the above address, or call 301-277-7111.  

We are soliciting candidates for group executive committees as well.  The Maryland Chapter is made up of nine groups that work at the local (county or regional) level.  The requirements for a group executive committee member are the same as those described above for the chapter executive committee members.  Serving on the executive committee of your local group is a rewarding and exciting experience.  We need committed, responsible, environmentally aware people to represent us at all levels of government and to make good decisions for our state and local entities.   If you would like to explore this option contact your group’s chair before October 30, 2011.  Following are the contact numbers and areas of jurisdiction for our nine groups:
