Background
Alan Weaver was an employee of the Sierra Club 1977-1997, beginning with the Hawaii Chapter and then moving to San Francisco, where he worked in the Books Department. Weaver was involved in efforts to create greater staff involvement in the company from the 1980s on and eventually helped to organize the Sierra Employee Alliance (SEA), which became an official representative of employees in 1992.The Sierra Club was incorporated in San Francisco on May 28, 1892 by John Muir and other supporters in order to study and preserve the mountain regions of the Pacific Coast. Since that time, the Club has worked to promote the responsible use of natural resources through outreach, education, and programs which make the Sierra accessible to the public.
