Sierra Club's national board of directors has elected new officers for the grassroots environmental organization. David Scott of Ohio was named president of the Sierra Club's board of directors. Susana Reyes of the Sierra Club Angeles Chapter also was elected to the national board (shown above in red, with L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, middle, and Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune, left).
Scott is a life-time member of the Sierra Club and a longtime environmental activist who most recently served as Sierra Club vice president. "I’m proud to serve the Sierra Club's volunteer leaders, members, supporters and staff as we continue our fight for clean energy solutions and a better future," said Scott. "The Sierra Club is committed to protecting our health, climate and environment, and I look forward to helping build on the progress we have made to secure climate solutions.”
The all-volunteer board of directors is elected by Sierra Club members and serves the organization's 2.1 million members and supporters in the Club’s mission to explore, enjoy and protect the planet.
Scott will work closely with volunteer leaders, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune and other staff members to expand the organization's influence and to educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment.
The other newly announced officers are Spencer Black of Wisconsin (vice president), Lane Boldman of Kentucky (returning secretary), Donna Buell of Iowa (returning treasurer) and Susana Reyes of Sierra Club Angeles Chapter, California (fifth officer), making up the executive committee of the national board of directors.
