October 12, 2006, will be a day that goes down in alternative fuel vehicle history. There are approximately forty-five registered National AFV Day Odyssey sites spanning across the United States in addition to international sites in Canada, Mexico, and Germany. We are actively recruiting many more, and it is not too late for your organization to get involved and be part of this life-changing event!
Remember, hosting a local site event is easy thanks to the comprehensive Site Coordinator Notebook. The notebook, produced by the NAFTC, provides step-by-step instructions to help you plan your event. The notebook comes complete with media aids, ad aids, promotional materials, event suggestions, and activity ideas. These items are also customizable to your organization’s event and can be found electronically on the accompanying “Graphics and Templates CD.”
All Odyssey participating sites, sponsors, and partners receive national recognition by being listed on the National AFV Day Odyssey Web site. Additionally, your company or organization will be showcased in the Executive Summary, which is distributed to Congress and thousands of others nationwide.
With the recent media buzz surrounding foreign oil, global warming, and greenhouse gas emissions, now is the time to get involved. We encourage everyone to visit an Odyssey event and explore the viable options available to consumers, fleet managers, and the automotive workforce alike. Together, we can make a difference!
If you would like to get involved with Odyssey 2006, please contact Odyssey Event Manager Julie Whiteman at NAFTC Headquarters via e-mail (Julie.firstname.lastname@example.org) or by calling 304-293-7882.
