Hi Electric Vehicle boosters and EVADC members,
Tonight, Wed Nov 13 is our monthly meeting of EVADC. 7 – 9 PM at the Silver SPring public library, where we frequently meet. 8901 Colesville Road, also known as Route 29, just inside the Beltway about 4 blocks and just a 4 block walk north of the Silver Spring METRO stop.
This is the 2nd Wed of the month, unlike our normal 3rd Wed of the month. I’m sorry if this causes confusion for some.
Please pass the word to your friends, listservs, etc. Invite them to join the excitement of EVs !
Pizza and beverages will be served, as usual.
Draft Agenda. I hope we get to discuss all these topics. There will be plenty of time before and after the meeting for “networking” and visiting with others.
Officer nominations/ elections. We have previously asked for nominees for our officers and will ask again at our meeting if there are any other people who would like to be nominated, or if you would like to nominate someone. So far, the following folks have been nominated:
President – Charlie Garlow
Vice President – Eric Cardwell, Rob Neighbour, Jeffrey Jacobs. Eric is currently serving as our VP, but he told us that he will be leaving for TN in the Spring.
Secretary – ? John Alder has been serving as our Secy, but it is not clear if he can attend our meetings.
Treasurer – Scott Wilson
Editor – Ron Kaltenbaugh.
We may attempt to include electronic ballots for those not able to attend in person.
Holiday party decisions. Date. Place need to be determined, SOON. Semaconnect in Bowie, MD, has graciously agreed to host us again this year. They have lots of chargers. But do we want to mix it up and go to a new location? The 3rd Wed is Dec 18.
EV DC Grand Prix high school races. Our local schools swept the national races in California, so the enthusiasm locally is building. What role does EVADC want to play? Global EEE and Nabih would like to hold the races in April this year. Location? Finances?
