we are here YEA! I CAN HEAR YOU!
But should that be something we'd actually recommend? Level one charging isn't really realistic for most people - Volt excepted (small battery, low range). And the Volt is discontinued, so that's not really the future.
I can see the slides, but there's no sound from your presentation?
You're supposed to be able to call via phone or get sound through the computer. Is it not giving you that option?
In the past we've hosted events where we've wanted to take the public for test drives, but have struggled getting the appropriate event insurance that would allow for this. Any suggestions?
I was told a liability waiver was unenforcable or inadequate. I see on the previous slide that they don't do test drives, which makes sense, but is unfortunate.
Do you have a document listing these resources?
What a bout test drives on closed tracks?
Please clarify EAA insurance requires 5 members' supporting (volunteering/organizing) to qualify?
When you have tagged along with another event what events have you had the most success with?
We have found third parties (such as an AIr District) to sponsor our entry into events. We also have a policy that we don't pay for participation in events.
Winning takaway message from Jukka, "I try not to micromanage this" YES!
This was truly very helpful. I learned many things about which I had not thought! WV DEED will be at Marshall University in Huntington, WV!!
For our major events (like DEED), we have expenses to close a city street, barricades, police supervision, etc. We've been successful getting donations of $250-$500 from car dealers who want to exhibit. They seem pretty happy to participate.
Where is that?
Greensboro, NC. Triad Electric Vehicle Assn (EAA Chapter)
The OEVA has just started doing "reverse events". We put out a flyer at our display in the Auto Show offering "OEVA University". Instead of trying to draw people to our events, we offer to take the event ot them with a customized presentation. Had alot of interest and 4 events booked so far
Or even an EV parked in a charging spot and not charging
doing the same thing at the local ymca
where, again, is "O " in OEVA? we aren't only in Silicon valley anymore ;- }
