Election for Club Board of Directors
You could hardly find a more persuasive argument for voting than the 2000
presidential election. A handful of votes made the difference between President
Al Gore and
President George W. Bush.
Perhaps the stakes aren’t quite so high for the Sierra Club’s
election for the national Board of Directors, but your vote can affect
of the Club in the coming years. The board sets Club policy and budgets
at the national
level and works closely with the staff to run the Club.
The Sierra Club is a democratically structured organization at all
levels that requires the regular flow of views on policy and priorities
membership in order to function well. Voting in elections at all
levels of the Club is both a privilege and responsibility of membership.
Club members voted in the last national election. To ensure the democratic
traditions of the Club, it’s important that we do all we can
to encourage fellow members to vote.
Members often say they don’t know enough about the candidates.
To find out more, talk with your group and chapter leaders, and other
