Expo

Twice a year, the NAFTC hosts membership meetings that we call Expos. We make every effort to hold one in the western U.S. and the other in the east. Typically lasting one to three days, these Expos feature training about topics related to alternative fuels and alternative fuel vehicles.

These events are free for NAFTC members and open, for a nominal fee, to individuals and colleagues in organizations such as the Clean Cities Coalition. Lunch and dinner

are included each day and participants are encouraged to attend a field trip on the final day.

Recent Expos have been held in:

  • Orlando, Florida, with a focus on propane-powered vehicles.
  • Morgantown, West Virginia, with a focus on electric mass transit and grant writing for external funding.
  • Las Vegas, Nevada, with a focus on second responders and AFVs. This meeting was held prior to the SEMA/AAPEX Show with all members getting free admission to the show.

Note that the Covid-19 situation has resulted in the NAFTC Expo for this summer being moved to an online format.
