About San Francisco Group

The national Sierra Club, founded in 1894, is subdivided into many local chapters. California has twelve and the San Francisco Group is one of eight regional groups in the San Francisco Bay Chapter. Each group has an executive and conservation committee and a number of topic or issue subcommittees covering a broad ranges of environmental issues. If you do not find a group committee covering your concerns, you can start one or work on one of many existing chapter committees. The group is independent within the guidelines of the national organization except on ballot issues and candidate endorsements, for which chapter and state political approvals are necessary.

Every Sierra Club member is automatically a member of the chapter and group determined by their mailing address, though some adjustments are possible.The group is mainly funded with small portion of your Club dues forwarded from the national organization through the chapter. In San Francisco, we are very lucky to be able to use the Club National Headquarters for meeting rooms, and some office amenities.
