The Sierra Club NYC Group is looking for committed activists to serve on the Group’s Executive Committee (ExCom).
The ExCom meets monthly on a weekday evening to decide on environmental issues and resources to promote what we believe in through:
-new member engagement
-educating on social media, forums and the like
-researching & advocating public policy reform
-helping to elect officials who share the Club’s agenda
ExCom members, along with other SC members, may contribute to the newsletter and website; serve on the political committee to consider whom to endorse for public office; represent the Club at environmental events; organize SC NYC events; help fundraise; and serve on issue committees. If you’re interested in working in an area that’s not covered, let’s talk!
If you’re a committed and energetic environmentalist who’s interested in serving on the NYC ExCom, please get in touch by sending a short statement by August 26: What are your environmental priorities and organizing experiences? What Sierra Club positions are you familiar with? What in your background attracts you to help administer the activities of the NYC Group?
After August 26, the Nominating Committee (NomCom) will notify all potential nominees if they’ve been nominated. We will meet with each candidate in late August and early September. Would-be nominees who have not been nominated by the NomCom may petition by obtaining the signatures of 25 NYC Group members. Petitions are due to the NomCom by September 15, and ballot statements of all candidates (nominated or petition) are also due by September 15.
The election will fill five 2-year terms.
Hoping to hear from you,
Allison Tupper, Chair, NYC Group
PS: If you’re not ready to serve on the ExCom but want to promote the work of the Sierra Club, consider joining a committee. To learn more about the Sierra Club NYC Group, visit our website and our Facebook page.
