This branch is to provide a forum for anyone interested in Electric Vehicles such as bicycles, cars and other forms of transport.
Meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm in the Engineering Faculty, Swinburne University, Hawthorn campus (entry via the EN building).
For a map of Swinburne see http://www.swinburne.edu.au/campuses/hawthorn/index.html
There is a monthly 30-45 minute meeting where matters pertaining to electric vehicles are discussed followed by a guest speaker who speaks to one of the many topics relating to electric vehicles. The formal part of the night is followed by an informal gathering for tea, coffee and biscuits and a chance to catch up with like minded people. There is no need to book and everyone (ATA member or not) is most welcome.
