AustinEV chapter members met for a lunch at Blacks BBQ to visit with Guy Hall (Chief Strategy Officer, Sacramento Electric Vehicle Association – President Emeritus, Sacramento Electric Vehicle Association – Board Secretary Electric Auto Association, Director Sacramento Clean Cities Board). The group talked about how the Electric Auto Association can better support the chapter and started planning for how the Austin chapter can play a part in the Fully Charged Live Event coming to Austin in February 2020 (more on this later).
