About the Ohio Chapter of the Sierra Club
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.
