Ohio Chapter Information
The Sierra Club Mission
- To explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth;
- To practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and
- To educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the
natural and human environment; and
- To use all lawful means to carry out these objectives.
The Ohio Chapter of the Sierra Club was chartered in 1968 and has an
extensive history of grassroots environmental activism in Ohio. More than 15,000
members make up six regional volunteer-driven Sierra Club groups
that work on environmental issues in their areas. These groups
meet regularly and sponsor a variety of conservation oriented activities
including outings events, activist campaigns, and environmental educational
programs. The Executive Committee (or ExComm) is the overall governing body of
the Ohio Chapter. It makes the broad policy decisions and sets the overall goals
that guide the Chapter's work.
There are 15 members of ExComm including at-large members and group
representatives. All Ohio Chapter Sierra Club members can vote in the annual
election for the at-large members.
Current Members of the Ohio Chapter Executive Committee

The Ohio Chapter also employs a full time professional staff person
who works in partnership with the volunteers in addressing
critical environmental issues in the state and works with the Ohio
General Assembly to promote the Sierra Club's state legislative
agenda. The Chapter's Liveable
Communities Campaign focuses on promoting clean transportation choices and
stopping suburban sprawl.
