Last week we had a meeting and decided we’d like to have more structure in our group and become an official club, and to model KauaiEV after the Big Island EV Association.

All of us in the meeting decided to individually join the EAA  Hawaii Chapter, and make KauaiEV part of the EAA. 

We would like to fill the following roles.

  • President 
  • Vice President  (Sonja)
  • Treasurer 
  • Secretary (Andy)
  • Member and Mailing List Manager
  • Event Coordinator 
  • Policy Person
  • Marketing
  • Blogger, Web and Social Media Person (Sonja)
  • Advisors
  • EAA Contact (Sharon)
  • Photographer
  • Volunteers 

If you like to nominate yourself or someone else for one or more of these roles please send me (Sonja) an email or text or a Facebook message to KauaiEV or leave a comment on this blog post (see below).  

Ideally everyone would just fill one role, however I suspect we won’t have enough people, so feel free to apply for more than one. Also, feel free to apply for roles that have names next to them already, everything is open and debatable.

Ideally the president should have enough time, and be available more consistently than I have been able to.

Other things we decided: Instead of regular meetings, have meetings only when needed, mostly when planning an event. Big Island EVA holds public gatherings once a month, in different locations, at coffeeshops and other small businesses, hosted by different members and I hope we’ll be able to copy this model. I’m sure we’ll have plenty to talk about among ourselves, but also the interested public can chat with EV owners and ask us questions.

 

If you’d like to nominate yourself for a role on the list (or another one we have not thought of) and your name is not up next to the role in parenthesis yet please tell us the following (cut and paste the following into an email and answer inline please). There are no wrong answers, we’d just like to know.

    Question: What would be the expectations and the involvement duty and time wise?

    Answer: It depends on the position, president is very time consuming, and treasurer less. The next important positions we have are event coordinator – busy at least once a year – and policy person who needs to follow state and county laws, and hopefully have a positive working relationship with the county’s sustainability coordinator.

    Less busy than the previous are Marketing as well as Member and Mailing list manager, and then the rest of the positions as listed on the blogpost I linked to.

    Ideally the person responsible for chargers would be one person, but for now the idea is to discuss charger policy across the board or a sub-committee, and have the advisors “adopt” one or more chargers and work positively with the station owners or management.

    We plan to waste as little time as possible with fruitless meetings, and only have scheduled meetings around events.
