In the fall of each year, Sierra Club members have the opportunity to vote for candidates to our Allegheny Group Executive Committee. YOU, our members, have the opportunity to submit names for consideration by our Nominating Committee. You can nominate yourself. The ExCom is a wonderful opportunity for you to make a difference here in southwestern Pennsylvania. You can help prioritize our campaigns, how we organize our work, and have a good time joining others who care about the world in which we live and its future. Monthly meetings occur the second Monday of each month at our office in Oakland from 7-9pm.
The nine member Executive Committee assures that the activities and services provided by the Group are consistent with our Group Bylaws as well as the policies and directives of the Pennsylvania Chapter of the Sierra Club and the National Sierra Club. These responsibilities include financial management, membership services, publication of The Sierran (our newsletter), conservation issues, outings and political programs. Each elected Executive Committee member serves a two year term and can run for re-election as often as he/she wishes.
Candidates for the ExCom provide a brief statement about their interest in environmental issues and why they wish to serve on the Executive Committee. These statements are included with the ballot. Voting by the membership for 4 or 5 of the 9 seats occurs in the fall via email or US Postal service. Results of the election will be announced in January 2018.
Please complete the form below no later than September 11, 2017 and email to Eva Westheimer at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail c/o the Sierra Club, 7708 Brashear St, Pittsburgh, PA 15221. Please let us hear from you. Your voice needs to be heard! (You can also download the form here: Ex Comm Nomination form 2017)
