Tennessee Chapter and Group Executive Committee Elections


Vote ExCom Elections


It's time again to vote for members of our Executive Committees. If you are an active member as of November 1, 2021, you may vote. Elected candidates will begin their terms in January, 2022. 

This year there is no electronic ballot. You can clip the ballots from the printed Tennes-Sierran Novenber/December issue, or you can download and print the ballots here: 

Ballot 2021 Page 

Ballots must be mailed following the instructions on the Ballot 2021 page. They must be received in Mt. Juliet, TN by December 15th, so keep in mind the expected slow down in First Class Mail predicted by the USPS. 

Each ballot contains bios for the candidates and indicates how many votes you may place. 

As a member, this is how you help determine the future direction and action of Sierra Club in Tennessee.


Black Line  

In response to COVID-19, we are suspending all planned
in-person events of any size through February 28, 2021.

For the next few months protecting our families, our communities, and ourselves is the highest priority and we have a social responsibility to be good actors. We continue to hold virtual meetings and programs on the web.
