- Do you support the vision? Does it need updating, tweaking? What would you add? What would you remove?
- What activities did you participate in last year?
- What kind of activities do you want to participate in next year?
- What kind of activities would attract more EV owners/drivers, and people interested in becoming EV owners/drivers?
