NEEAA : Message: NEEAA March Meeting Minutes

Great meeting last Saturday – glad to see so many make it out for the Yale get together! EVs present were the Leaf and Tom’s Kia EV. Folks showing up included Joe B, Bill G, Jesse, George, Tom H, Dale, Gilles and others.

The meeting was held at Yale’s recently opened CEID, a place where students can machine, 3-D print, solder and otherwise fabricate anything they can think of! Very impressive facility!

The business meeting started at 3pm and wrapped up about 4:10pm so the Yale Bulldog Race Team could present their design work.

Below are the minutes of the meeting. See you at the April meeting!

Yours in EVs,

Considering how EVs are advancing, Dave suggests opening the ranks for two new Vice-President positions; VP of Conversions and VP of OEM EVs.

We need one more for VP of OEM EVs and we can vote on them at the next meeting. If interested, please send an e-mail to me – thx.
