Join Sierra Club Leadership!

The Angeles Chapter Nominating Committee is recruiting Executive Committee leaders for the chapter and our regional groups. 
Executive Committee members guide the Sierra Club’s work in our communities. We make decisions about environmental policy, recommend the endorsement of political candidates, and direct our outreach activities. A good Executive Committee member has a deep love for the Sierra Club and the environment, and a willingness to serve the organization, and collaborate with fellow members to explore, enjoy and protect the wild places of Southern California. 
Some things to know:
  • To run, candidates should contact the Nominating Committee Chair with information about their background and reasons for running by the deadline (see below). There is also an option to run by petition. 
  • Terms are for two (2) years and begin in January 2023
  • Both the Chapter and the regional Groups have several ExCom positions becoming available that begin in 2023
  • To be eligible to run for ExCom, candidates must be active Sierra Club members and have their nomination submitted, and be a Sierra Club member by July 10, 2022
  • The election period—when voting takes place—runs from October 3, 2022, through November 14, 2023
  • We believe that environmental injustice/climate change disproportionately hurts the most marginalized people in society — including people of color, people from working-class backgrounds, women, and LGBTQ people. We believe that these communities must be centered in our work. Hence, we strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or who are members of other marginalized communities.
If you know someone that would be a great fit for our executive committee, maybe even yourself— contact our nomination committee today! Nominating Committee members are:
