San Francisco Bay Chapter Sierra Club


2014 Chapter Elections

The Sierra Club is a grassroots, democratic organization. Support the process at the local level by running for the San Francisco Bay Chapter Executive Committee or one of its local Group Executive Committees. Executive Committees are the Chapter's decision-making boards, overseeing budgets, administering activities, deciding local conservation policy, and endorsing political candidates.

Please consider running for the Executive Committee! If you are a member with experience on another committee or with organizing, environmental issues, or fundraising, we could use your skills. You can download an application packet—including an applicant letter, timeline, sample statement, statement and photo guidelines, campaign guidelines, and questionnaire—below.
