Event Report

Our event was pretty successful, we had approximately 40-50 people who attended as a whole.

From roughly 5-6pm we had local EV owners arrive in their EV to "show and tell" people about their EV. Essentially, this was an hour meant for mingling. 

From 6-7pm, we had our keynote speaker discuss the basic overview of EVs and also dove a bit more into the policy behind electric vehicles. 

According to the feedback we had received from event attendees, the majority of individuals enjoyed the event, particularly the earlier part where they could chat with actual EV owners.
