OK one of the repeating issues which I keep hearing people mention is that the often feel they are about the only person around who seems to have any desire to see more electric vehicles on our roads.
The rapid expansion of membership of this forum and the main website (www.BatteryVehicleSociety.org.uk
) illustrates how many people have been searching for other like minded people and how we can introduce people to electric vehicles if we simply communicate better.
I know for a fact that you are seldom much more than 10 miles from another member of the BVS (how do I know this? Well I've made a note of people I meet and where they are located for my own purposes
) They often say how frustrating it is to get intouch with other members of the society and like minded people. This is in fact the whole reason why the Society started in the first place, to enable like minded people to get together and commiunicate with one another.
Now I know there are people who are very warey of having their contact information available. (in fact I'm one of them I'm ex directory and I am on the mailing preferance and telephone preferance services for example
) but each member of the BVS has a membership number which can be used in lieu of their name if they don't want their name to be used.
It is fairly simple to put together a list for the purposes of easing communication between members without divulging people's names if that is their wish. I know because I've done it with several organisations.
So at the top of this posting there is a poll where you can indicate your prefferance relating to this. Simply click the option YES or NO. It's not a compulsory list you would have effectively 3 options in it
1) Not to be included in the list at all
2) To be listed under your name
3) To be listed anonymously using your BVS membership number
Let's hear your views.......
