The Angeles Chapter is seeking a Senior Chapter Director.  

The Chapter represents the 43,000+ members of the Sierra Club located in 2 southern California counties:  Los Angeles and Orange. It features desert, mountain, and coastal areas surrounding one of the most densely-populated urban centers in the country.  The region includes some of the most liberal districts as well as some of the most conservative, some of the wealthiest and some of the poorest areas.  Both Latinx and Asian populations are represented in large numbers. Affordable housing, homelessness, traffic congestion, air quality, sustainable water supplies, encroaching development on our wild lands, and an entrenched fossil fuel industry are some of the issues facing the Angeles Chapter.  We are a microcosm of the world’s challenges in confronting the effects of climate change. The Senior Chapter Director has the chance to grow a strong grassroots organization in building a more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive future not just for the Sierra Club, but for all the residents of this area.  There are many challenges, but an abundance of opportunities for the right candidate.
