Did you know that 2014 marks forty years since the founding of the Sierra Club’s Kansas Chapter?
Hard to believe, isn’t it?
To commemorate this landmark year and plan for the future, the Kansas Chapter will host a one-day statewide gathering of members and friends.
Please plan to join your fellow Sierra Club members at the “Sierra Club – Kansas Chapter Fortieth Anniversary Celebration & Conference: Planning the Next Forty!”
The conference will be held on Saturday, March 8, 2014, 8:30 a.m. – 4:15 p.m., at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Topeka, 4775 SW 21st Street, Topeka, Kansas.
The day has been planned around themes of enhancing member activism and growth, refining the focus of our campaigns and activities for the coming years, and educating ourselves on the issues.
Sessions will include panel discussions by regional experts on the challenges of environmentalism in Kansas today.
Also, Group and Chapter leaders will give their perspectives on where we go from here, and you’ll have a chance to learn more about the Chapter Committees that most closely align with your environmental interests and passions.
This is a great opportunity for Kansas Chapter members and leaders from around the state to get acquainted. Continental breakfast and buffet luncheon will be provided at no cost to participants.
Several special guests have been invited to address the gathering and give Club members a perspective on the challenges we face as environmentalists in Kansas.
This event is free for Sierra Club members and guests.
