It's that time again. Time for some fresh faces to step up to an executive role in the local chapter. Why should you get involved? Here are the Top 3 reasons to run for a position on the executive committee:
1. Take local action on global issues
Surfrider is a global non-profit, but the real action takes place at the grassroots level to protect and enjoy our oceans, waves, and beaches.
Every year we participate in dozens of community events! Examples of awesome events we've taken part of are Charles Moore's book tour, the Rip Curl Pro Tofino, countless beach & mountain cleanups, film premieres, Paul Watson at the Projecting Change Film Fest, PaddleFest, Boardstock, Crankworx, and so many more! Surfrider is active in the community and as an executive you'll be right in the thick of the action, making great things happen.
2. Connect with great people
Surfrider volunteers are known to pick up trash (even on rainy days), go plastic free, make their own yogurt, organize events, enjoy a perfect day at the beach, develop educational materials for kids, give each other high fives, test water samples, and so much more. We're a pretty okay bunch if we do say so ourselves. As an executive you'll connect with passionate like-minded people.
3. Get work experience
Are you in school and looking for real world experience? Maybe you have a job but want to get hands on learning in a new role? Enjoy the flexibility and personal satisfaction that comes from spending time on a cause you care about.
And besides, it's fun!
We will be holding executive elections during our next chapter meeting, Dec 11th. See the Events page for time and place information.
