The Chapter’s Southern Alameda County (SAC) Group is looking for two new members for its Executive Committee. The SAC ExCom holds a public meeting every other month in Hayward where issues of environmental importance are discussed and Sierra Club business transacted. Meetings are typically held the fourth Wednesday of even-numbered months. Most of the activity takes place in the months leading up to elections, when candidates are interviewed for potential Sierra Club endorsements and ballot measures are considered for endorsement. Other SAC activities in recent years have including co-sponsoring forums on water issues and submitting public comments on behalf of the Sierra Club. SAC also sends representatives to the Bay Chapter Executive and Political Committees in order to have a voice in issues that affect the entire Bay Area.
If you are a current member of the Sierra Club living in Southern Alameda County (Hayward, Union City, Newark, Fremont, Ashland, Cherryland, Castro Valley, Fairview, and San Lorenzo), are interested in environmental politics, want to learn more about local candidates and issues, and can commit to spending about five hours per month on Sierra Club business, please email Group treasurer, Toni Wise, at toniwise at mac.com, for information on how to apply to fill one of these two vacancies.
