CNRCC Registration Page

The 2014 joint CNRCC and Sierra Club California two-day convention runs from Saturday morning, October 11, through midday on Sunday, October 12.  It takes place in San Luis Obispo County at the Rancho El Chorro park and public meeting facility.

The agenda is still being finalized, but Saturday is packed with interesting activities and information, from early morning through the evening.  Sunday is usually reserved for elections and other business until adjournment at noon.

Our keynote speakers for the event will be the team of Sev Williams and Nina Erlich-Williams, the duo who have helped California environmental groups and coalitions over the years make effective use of the media to counter the claims of polluters.  In addition to their keynote, during which they’ll share examples of ways media can help win battles, Sev and Nina will offer at least one workshop at the convention to give Club members more detailed instruction about employing the elements of a winning media campaign.  

Every Sierra Club member is welcome to attend, and admission is low: Attending the entire weekend, including rustic lodging in a bunkhouse-style cabin, from Friday evening through Sunday morning, costs just $55. Lunch and dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday are included. Even then, nobody is turned away from the meetings due to lack of funds, and some scholarships are available. There are also reasonably priced motels in neighboring communities (Morro Bay, Los Osos, San Luis Obispo, etc.) within a 15-minute drive of the park. If you attend for a single day, the fee is $30 per day.

Some members attend as voting delegates. But you don’t have to be a voting delegate to attend. If you’ve been looking for a way to get more involved in Sierra Club California and the work we do to advance environmental protection around the state, or you want to learn or hone skills to be effective, the convention should be in your sights.
