About Us

The Indian Peaks Group, or IPG, is named after the mountain range consisting of Shoshoni Peak, North and South Arapaho Peaks, Navajo Peak, and other summits on the Continental Divide in western Boulder County. The IPG works to protect the environment in Boulder County. All of the Sierra Club-Indian Peaks Group activists working to protect the environment are volunteers who give their free time to help protect what we all love.

2023 Open Call for Indian Peaks Group Executive Committee Nominations

This fall, four Executive Committee positions for the Indian Peaks Group Executive Committee will be voted upon by the Indian Peaks Group membership.

As part of our ongoing commitment to lead from the grassroots, please consider recommending Sierra Club-Indian Peaks Group members for consideration to the IPG Nominating Committee (Steve Welter, chair).

You may nominate yourself if you are interested in being on the Executive Committee.

The Nominating Committee will follow up with nominees as part of the process, and every candidate who confirms their interest by October 15, 2023 will be considered. 

The following information can be sent in an email to steve.welter@comcast.net  by October 15, 2023:

Your name and the name of person you are recommending along with email and phone number 

All candidates will be asked to submit a 150-word (or fewer) biographical statement highlighting your environmental experience and interests. If you are selected to run for election to the IPG ExCom, this statement will appear with the Colorado Chapter-issued online ballot during the election. It will also be on this IPG website. We’ll also publish candidates’ photos.

There is also a process to petition onto the IPG ExCom election ballot. The name of any Indian Peaks Group member, proposed and supported in writing to the Nominations Committee by at least 15 Indian Peaks Group members prior to October 31, 2023, if that person gives their consent, shall also be included on the ballot.

Thank you,

IPG Nominating Committee
