Fundraiser for Inspiring Connections Outdoors

Join us Sunday November 15th 10am to 12:30 for a sumptuous Sunday brunch, followed by a leisurely guided nature hike starting from private land near Barton Creek. We'll have a wonderful meal, and if not too stuffed, take an easy stroll down to and along the creek. Proceeds will benefit Inspiring Connections Outdoors, the Sierra Club's outreach program for under served members of the community. Our ICO group has led a number of field trips for local kids in the past year, and with your help we can do much more. It takes money for us to continue to provide the quality of outings with the youth of Austin.
A minimum donation of $25 is requested (part of which is tax-deductible). Please write a check to: "Sierra Club Foundation - Austin ICO" and mail to address given with RSVP. Check must be received no later than Wednesday, Nov 11. RSVP on Meetup does not reserve a spot.
Note that the mailing address is not the event address (home in southwest Austin), which will be communicated after payment is received.

Meet your 2016 Executive Committee Candidates

This year we have four candidates running for three open positions on the Austin Sierra Club Executive Committee (ExCom) to serve two-year terms (2016-2017). Niles Seldon, after serving four years on ExCom will step-down from his position. Bruce Melton and Joseph Barletta are running as incumbents, and Andrew Harrod and Peter Rivera are running for the first time. Board members Julie Johnson, Janis Snow, Roy Waley, and Damien Brockmann will complete their terms in 2016. Read about the candidates in the November Issue of the Austin Sierran Newsletter. Click to read. Scroll to the VOTE icon. Sierra club members will receive a ballot via email. 

ExCom members do the difficult work of organizing activities, fundraising, and speaking out at community meetings so that you can have a local Sierra Club we can all be proud of. An email ballot will be sent to Austin newsletter subscribers within the next few days and votes must be cast by December 5th. For your vote to be counted you must be a current member of the Sierra Club. Join here if you are not already a member, and please vote!
