2017 GGAS Board Election — Vote online or in person

April 30th, 2017

Golden Gate Audubon Society is a membership organization, so once each year we ask our members to vote on nominees to the GGAS Board of Directors.

We are delighted to present one dedicated and highly qualified Board candidate during this election cycle, Sharon Beals.

Sharon Beals is a photographer, author and a self-described citizen scientist. Her book, Nests: Fifty Nests and the Birds that Built Them (Chronicle Books), is her effort to create interest in the conservation issues affecting birds. Her photographs have appeared in AudubonNational Geographic, and Birding magazines, and a show of her nest photographs  has traveled from the National Academy of Scienes, to Massachusetts Audubon, and to Cornell University Museum of Vertebrates. Since publication of her book, Sharon has had the opportunity to give presentations about conservation issues, including a TED Earth talk and a presentation to architects on bird-safe buildings.

Please fill out the form below to vote online. Don’t forget to click the “Submit” button!

You can also vote in person at our Speaker Series on June 15 or at the GGAS office at 2530 San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley during our office hours, which are 9 to 12 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. If you prefer to have a paper ballot mailed to you, please call Office Manager Monica Moore at (510) 843-2222.

Sharon is nominated for a three-year term that will end in 2020. Write-in board candidates are not permitted. For a complete list of current board members, see goldengateaudubon.org/about-us/about-our-board/
