It’s Time to Vote for the Maryland Chapter Executive Committee

 

This issue of Chesapeake includes the ballot for electing at-large members of the executive committee of the Maryland Chapter of the Sierra Club.

 

The Sierra Club is a grassroots environmental organization that elects its own volunteer leadership from among its members. Every member is entitled to vote and to run for leadership positions in the club. The executive committee (excom) runs the chapter and determines the chapter’s policies and responses to the many environmental challenges we face in Maryland. In addition to developing and supporting our legislative agenda, setting priorities for conservation campaigns, and facilitating communication between the chapter and the groups, the excom faces the challenge of achieving fiscal stability despite rising operational costs and a change in the funding mechanism from the national club.

The excom comprises six at-large members elected by the Maryland membership, and one delegate from each of our nine groups. At-large members are elected for two-year terms. Three of the six at-large positions are up for election each year. The executive committee elects the  chapter chair and other officers from its own ranks.

 

The excom meets in person six times a year on the third Saturday of every odd month, and by scheduled teleconference in the even months. Those elected will take their positions at the January 21, 2012, meeting.

 

This is your chance to choose the people who will lead the chapter through the next year. Please consider the candidates’ statements carefully and vote in this election for members-at-large for the executive committee of your Maryland Chapter of the Sierra Club. Please complete the ballot, and mail it to the chapter office at this address:
