Sierra Club's Annual Election
Each year, 5 of the 15 members of the National Sierra Club Board of Directors end their three-year term, and Sierra Club members have the opportunity to vote on 5 candidates to fill the empty seats. Our grassroots structure is strengthened when membership participation is high. That means your participation is needed in the voting process.
