The Chapter Political Committees

were established to promote the election of environmentally sensitive candidates to public office, and to maintain a working relationship with legislators and other elected elected officials. Activities include recommending endorsements to ExCom, organizing support for endorsed candidates, and maintaining a liaison with successful candidates after elections. Groups, sections, committees, and task forces are elibible to appoint a voting member of the committees, but individuals may also become members.

Orange County Political Committee meets the first Thursday of the month at 7:10 pm sharp. For more information, contact Paul Arms (714-960-8558) or Alex Mintzer (714-288-2829)

The Los Angeles County Political Committee's meetings may be found in the Schedule of Activities, or by contacting Susana Reyes, Chair.
