Our next meeting is Saturday, March 13, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm, at the Wayne Public Library in Wayne, NJ (see below for directions).

Presentations will include:

  • Paul Heitmann will talk about the Electric Vehicle (EV) Project, its goals, and the general movement toward EVs and what is needed. Paul recently joined Phoenix-based eTec, which received a grant for $100 million to undertake the largest deployment of electric vehicles and charging stations in U.S. history. Previously, Paul worked for Comverge (NJ), a demand response and energy efficiency company, providing smart grid solutions to utilities and their commercial, industrial and residential customers.
  • Regan Caton was inspired to create The Awarenest when she had trouble finding sustainable and green living resources in her community. The Awarenest is an online portal connecting and delivering sustainable resources to local communities. Due to take flight February 20th, please take a look at the site in beta-testing: http://awarenest.stage.cc. Founder-Regan Caton has spent the last 25 years in accessory design and is also the co-owner of Rumblefish Collection which offers eco-friendly jewelry that is cause oriented. Regan is also the “green” product advisor for EcoMattersTV which will be launching online June 2010.

Leadership Quotes

"Nearly every man who develops an idea works it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then he gets discouraged. That's not the place to become discouraged."
(Thomas A. Edison—thanks to Regan Caton)

"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” (G.B. Shaw)

"There is the true joy of life: to be used by a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; to be thoroughly worn out before being thrown on the scrap heap; to be a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that life will not devote itself to making you happy." (G.B. Shaw)

"Leadership is a privilege to better the lives of others. It is not an opportunity to satisfy personal greed." (Mwai Kibaki, President of Kenya - thanks to Christine Comaford, Rules for Renegades)
