It is not too late to get involved and participate in National AFV Day Odyssey. By hosting a 2006 Odyssey event, you will be a part of a special network of participating sites across the country. Each site will work toward the same goal of promoting the use of AFVs and advanced technology vehicles, tailoring the event to its unique situation and location. The NAFTC will provide each site with comprehensive national guidance, coordination, and support for National AFV Day Odyssey.

All Odyssey sites, sponsors, and partners will be recognized nationally and associated as a leader and supporter of the AFV industry. Furthermore, all involved will be listed on the National AFV Day Odyssey Web site ( and highlighted in the Executive Report, which is distributed to Congress and to thousands of others nationwide. Together, we can make a difference!
