August SFBC board meeting canceled
The SFBC board meeting scheduled for August 22 has been canceled. The next board meeting will be September 26.

Interested in running for election to the SFBC board?
Board elections will be happening before you know it. Board member terms are two years and about half the board is elected each year. This year, seven seats will be up for election.

Have you ever thought about running for the board? I’d be happy to chat with you about what it’s like to be on the board. Please reply to this email.

Members for More Representative Elections (MMRE) continues its work to strengthen the SFBC as a democratic, member-based, advocacy organization. MMRE supports ranked choice voting, board member term limits, and increasing the quorum requirement for specific membership referendums. Join them to learn more.
