  • Welcome
  • Who we are Recent efforts Developments in the industry
  • Review of accomplishments: 1. Secretary: Kept detailed minutes of each meeting and distributed to each Board Member during interval between meetings. Used to track progress of various issues, document action items to be accomplished by Board members and recorded voting and decisions made by Board. Gathered legal information together when securing new mailing permit. Membership tracking was delegated to the Membership Chairman, Will Beckette. Also served as main contact point for Board and EAA, via email and link on website. Responded to any inquiries. Had solicitations from various manufacturers and sales people. Had concerns by members, and answered for forwarded requests to appropriate Board member or Chapter. Also responded to people's inquiries about EV interests and vehicles/equipment for sale, sometimes redirecting them with websites or people to meet their needs.
  • I was asked by the board to take on the membership responsibilities at the February meeting last year. This position was formerly held by Anna Cornell. Anna did a nice job of writing up a procedure for the position making it clear what the duties were and things to watch out for. I spent two or three months settling in and then outlined the procedure as I was performing them, for the purpose of backing up the function so it could easily transition to the next person if I was ever not able to continue to perform the function. The procedure details the day to day and month to month tasks and responsibility. It details the functions of the database and talks about the additional fields added. A copy of the procedure was sent to the chairman and secretary. A backup of the full database has been sent on a regular basis to the Secretary (person responsible for membership). Accomplishments during 2001: At the direction of the board, created a new membership/confirmation card used to confirm the receipt of dues while including a tear away membership card. The postcard includes the member(s) name, date of payment, membership start and stop dates, chapter affiliation and recently added, the membership number. Cards are produced from 8.5 x 11 card stock and cut with a paper cutter A new renewal letter was created that uses the function of MSWord merge letters using the MSAccess membership database. Membership information creates a unique letter for each members that not only is used with a window envelope as the address for sending but was expended to include all membership data for the member to confirm. FINAL NOTICE is printed on the top of each page for members that did not renew when the renewal notice was sent to them two months prior. A message indicates possession of an electric vehicle. The form includes some survey questions including a questions about EV miles driven. Comment report created so member comments can be distributed to the board. Created reports and charts to help communicate membership activity to the Board. New vs. non-Renewal information chart. Odometer EV miles count Current member count By chapter active member count Database was modified to include more information about the member and to make it more flexible for merge forms. Second name fields added for dual membership (spouses) Additional phone number fields added for work and Fax numbers E-mail address field added Web site field added Payment table added so that all member payments can be retained. Inactive check box added to allow easy sorting of current members. Payment dates don’t always reflect active membership, members die. First, last and initials separated for easier merge management. Zip and zip extension (+4) separated for easier management. PayPal check box added for identification of PayPal payment activity. Chapter officer, and board membership fields added. Chapter table expanded and new chapter subform created to better display chapter data and affiliation requirements. Valid chapter detail report created. Chapter officers e-group created for improved officer communications. For posting messages to chapter officers For sharing reports, forms and registered logos with officers. MS Streets map created of chapter meeting locations, and posted. Academic Chapter added The board just approved a new chapter structure called an Academic Chapter, which requires only three people connected with the academic organization. Membership fee waves the rebate for a fee of $29 each. Future proposal will be to offer subscriptions to CE at $29 also (would not include a membership). Membership levels New members during the last year 126, slightly lower from the previous year (112), 10.5 Non-renewals during the last year 211, slightly lower from the previous year (235), 18 Six new chapters were added last year(OEAA, CEAA, FVEAA, AAEAA, TOEAA, EEVC ) but during the last year one chapter became inactive (Virgina)
  • In working the Chapter Relations - East as an EAA Board Member since August 2001, it seems that the title may convey a geographic distinct as in San Francisco Bay - East, East of the Sierra Nevadas, ... or even East of the Mississippi River to the Atlantic Ocean. However, the effort would still entail three main categories of EVndeavors here -- first, establishing new EAA Chapters; second, reconstituting "lapsed" EAA Chapters; and third, converting independent EV organizations into the EAA Chapters Family. In the first category, we see the founding of the "first in the millennium" of the Electric Auto Association of the Coastal Carolinas, in November of 2001. Check out EAA-CC on < www.eaaev.org >. Note: "Chapter Relations - East" did make it to the second meeting of EAA-CC in December. It was held at Top Sail High School, just outside of Wilmington, NC -- all part of a "share-ride-&-tell" get-together with these HS students, who are top notch winners in the EVChallenge [see < www.evchallenge.org >]. In addition to this, "retiring" work is still underway to create in the near term the Northampton County Electric Vehicle Association (EVANC). And feelers are out for others, too! Do you know of some EV'rs that "Chapter Relations - East" should be contacting? If so, let EVJerry know pronto, if not sooner! Next, my efforts on reconstituting "lapsed" EAA Chapters focus currently on three entities -- the Southeast Florida EAA, the Southeastern EAA out of Charlotte, NC, and the Tri-State EAA with New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. In this regard, it's a bit more trying due to "sins of omissions from the EAA past," I'm afraid in my humble opinion. Yet,it's reconstitutionally worthy of creating a "greener, cleaner America" with lapsed chapters. And your assistance, !por favor! if you find yourself in this category. EAA with a dynamic, new Board in place is definitely endeavoring to make the Association one with truly a nation-wide focus and identity. In fact, the first ever EAA Chapters Meeting, or better noted, Convention, has been unanimously board-approved and funded. This EVent will be in May 2002, hopefully to coincidence with the Northeastern Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA) most reknown 14th Annual Tour de Sol: The Great American Green Transportation Festival. The TdeS will kick off on the Capitol Mall in Washington, DC, on 14 May.[See also < www.nesea.org >] Do drop your Rep here a note or two votes, if you can join in an integral part of the re-constitution! In the third category for creating new EAA Chapters from existing independent EV organizations, favorable contact is underway with Eastern Electric Vehicle Club. Think in terms of the Philadelphia as well as the New Jersey area across the Delaware River for EEVC. All appears quite mutually beneficial for both EEVC and EAA to strategically link-up. And EEVC should be voting on this issue, come its February meeting. Also, noteworthy contact has been made with the independent Fox Valley EAA. Take a "Look-See" at < www.fveaa.org > for EV'rs in this active Chicago area association. It's well worth it! Your "Chapter Relations - East" is open to feedback from others in this matter. Be it from EV'rs in Detroit, Denver, or wherEVer. In wrapping up this column, let me invite any Current EVent reader to send in his/her name, email address, and phone numbers as well as those of prospective EV'rs who would be interested in setting up, reconstituting, and/or creating an EAA Chapter.

    37. 37. JUNIOR SOLAR SPRINT National Renewable Energy Laboratory Linda Lung April 21, 2001 Operated for the U.S. Department of Energy by Midwest Research Institute • Battelle • Bechtel
    38. 38. Future of Transportation In the coming decades, transportation in the U.S. is expected to change radically in response to environmental constraints, fluctuating oil availability and economic factors.
    39. 39. Future Decision-Makers The transportation systems that emerge in the 21 st century will be defined largely by the choices, skills and imaginations of today’s youth.
    40. 40. Future Workforce As scientists and engineers, they will develop new vehicle and fuel technologies. As citizens, they will make decisions balancing mobility, environmental, and economic needs.
    41. 41. Social Implications Students are encouraged to consider the influence of transportation on social and economic patterns, energy use and the environment. JSS is an excellent opportunity to combine the teaching of scientific and social principles in an atmosphere of fun and excitement.
    42. 42. History of the Junior Solar Sprint <ul><li>1990 - First JSS was held at Argonne National Lab with 6 local schools </li></ul><ul><li>1991 – Grew to 10 regional competitions. DOE also funded a national JSS that was held on the Mall in Washington, D.C. </li></ul><ul><li>1992 – 15 regional competitions </li></ul><ul><li>1993 – 20 regional competitions </li></ul><ul><li>1994 – DOE designated NREL as the national coordinator. DOE subsidized the kit prices, the kits cost $15.00, schools were charged $5.00. Grew to 44 regional competitions </li></ul><ul><li>1995 – DOE continued to subsidize the kits. NREL supplied to all sites student and teacher information. Grew to 53 regional competitions. </li></ul>
    43. 43. History of the Junior Solar Sprint <ul><li>1996 – DOE zeroed the JSS budget. Previous year’s recouped funds was sent back to the Dept. of Treasury. Schools were charged full price of $19.99. 83 regional competitions. </li></ul><ul><li>NREL found two manufacturers for the JSS kits: PITSCO and Solar World. Regional competitions order directly from the manufacturers. </li></ul><ul><li>1997 – 65 regional competitions in 30 states. K’NEX funded a 10 team national competition in Dallas, TX at the Science Place. </li></ul><ul><li>Regional competitions have leveled out to around 40 for the last couple of years.
