Call for Nominations for the Ontario Chapter Executive Committee
The Ontario Chapter of Sierra Club Canada is looking for nominees to run for positions on the chapter’s Executive Committee. Ex Com members will lead the chapter, making decisions on fundraising, campaign strategy, running annual meetings, and managing funds.
We need help from Sierra Club members in finding the right people to lead our chapter! All members are invited to nominate any Sierra club members who they feel would make a positive addition to the chapter leadership.
Do you know a club member with a strong passion for environmental issues? Has s/he shown leadership and initiative in bringing about positive change and inspiring others? We’d love to hear about them!
The term of office for these positions will be two years. On a practical level, being an Ex Com member means taking part in meetings, usually about once per month, to organize and run the business and activities of the SCC-ACC, including the Annual General Assembly. This may also involve taking on a position as an officer and/or chair of a committee, and there will be continuous opportunity to be active in various campaigns and projects.
August 17th, 2012, is the deadline for receipt of names for candidates to be considered by the Nominations Committee.
Instead of being nominated through this process and the nominating committee, candidates may also be added to the ballot through petition. The name of any Chapter member proposed in writing by at least 15 Chapter members prior to August 17th, 2012, and who gives consent, shall also be included on the ballot automatically.
