Sustainability Action Network Governance

Our Governing Body: Sustainability Action is governed by its active membership, which meets annually to elect a Board of Directors.  Policy issues are formulated by our Board of Directors by consensus, and ratified by a majority of our membership.

We hold monthly Board meetings that are open to all members and people in the community, and at which major organizational issues and events are planned and decided.  Our monthly meetings are generally on Thursday evenings, 6:00-7:30pm, the date and location being published in the weekly Sustainability Action e-newsletter.  To subscribe to this free newsletter, scroll to the bottom of this page where you can sign up.
