All monthly meetings are free to attend and open to the public.

We had a great turn out again at DMS, we just about filled up the meeting room again.  We even had a surprise visitor!  John B. showed up at this months meeting!  For those of you who don’t know John, he was the previous NTEAA President years ago and really did a lot of great things for the EV community while he was NTEAA President.  He moved down into the Austin area and is doing a lot of good work down there with the City and trying to get a School Chapter going.  So that was great to see John again and get some updates from him.

We discussed the upcoming events going on and we believe we have all of the arrangements needed to fill the events and have the man power to run some booths.  So we hope you come out to all of the Earth Day events coming up and come see us.

We also discussed moving the meeting to an alternate day because NTREG (http://www.txses.org/NTREG/) also meets on the same date and time.  NTEAA and NTREG have a lot of synergies and a lot of us would like to attend both events.  So it was put to a vote and the NTEAA monthly meeting has been rescheduled going forward to the 3rd Saturday of the month.  The NTEAA website calendar has already been updated and we hope this new meeting date works as well or better for us all.

We did do our Officer Elections this month and we do have some new people in positions.  The new filled positions are Ron Swanson as President and Neal Farris as Vice President.  Paul is still Secretary and Bill is still Treasurer. I (Jared L.) just didn’t feel I like I had the adequate time to give to NTEAA so I stepped down as President.  But I will still be helping out where I can and doing the website updates.

After our meeting we were planning on showing the movie “Revenge of the Electric Car”, but after we adjourned, everyone went out into the work shop and was checking on Bob and Stan’s progress on their EVs.  So we didn’t end up watching the movie after all.  But it is there now at DMS when ever we do have spare time and can watch it at a later date.

There was a lot of great conversations in the warehouse and they continued on for a very long time.  So we had a lot of show and tell and a lot of information exchange and was great to be part of that.  We hope you will be able to join us in a future meeting even if it is just to get questions answered.

This is my last post as President, I hope my contributions over the last 4 years as President (2009 – 2012) have helped grow EVs as a viable mode of transportation.   I wanted to thank everyone who has helped over the years to make NTEAA what it is today and I look forward to all of the great work to come from the new officers.  Lets all give them our support as we move forward.

Jared
