All the News for March 2021

Let's all go to the movies!!

At long last - our first NTTOG social event!  With the slow & steady improvements to the pandemic's impact, we felt an outdoor activity & the ability to practice social distancing was just what the doctor ordered!  So mark your calendars now!

Date: Saturday, March 27th
Time: First showings typically start around 7pm

We recommend getting there early (6:00 pm) so we can do a nice socially-distanced arrangement of our Teslas, order food & drink, and safely reconnect with all our club friends!

Help us Pass the Electric Transportation Act ("ETA")

The Texas Legislature is in session and our EV Bill was filed as HB 2221 by Rep. Canales, House Transportation Committee Chair. We need your help to tell lawmakers how EV Drivers feel about issues like EV fees, EV charging station locations, and more.  Please click the Survey link below to share your opinions. Thanks!

A more detailed message from the TxETRA Executive Director Tom "Smitty" Smith went out to TxETRA members on March 11th. Smitty's message contained more detailed information about the legislative work in progress, including HB 2221 and 2 other important pieces of legislation.

Proposal:  State-wide Tesla Owners Club (TOC)

The NTTOG Board of Directors is seeking permission from our membership to change our charter and bylaws. This change would allow for the creation of a state-wide TOC, using the North Texas Tesla Owners Group (d/b/a Tesla Owners Club of North Texas) not-for-profit incorporation and tax exemption status.

There are some benefits to moving to a state-wide TOC: Any Texas-based TOC now or in the future, could join this new company as a “chapter” and receive incorporation, tax exemption, insurance, and other shared services benefits. This type of structure benefits new clubs just getting started, as well as allows us to work together as a larger & more powerful entity. 

Tesla Owners Club of North Texas would also become a chapter of the state organization - as a peer/equal to all other participating clubs. The new club would be:  Texas Owners Club of Texas, with Greater Houston and North Texas now as "chapters."

NOTE: There would be an additional vote required of our membership when we’re ready to execute the transaction. More about this important topic in weeks to come. Make sure you're following us on all of our Social Media channels for the most up-to-date info!

Consider Becoming a Regular/Contributing Member!

ARE YOU A MEMBER OF TESLA OWNERS CLUB OF NORTH TEXAS? Our main FB group is designed as a place to chat and share ideas and questions about Tesla ownership. But, being a participant on Facebook does not include you in the actual membership of our Club.

We refer to official Club members as "contributing" or "regular" members. And while we certainly try to have a few events every year that are open to everyone, the majority are for contributing members only. There are many factors that play into this, but one major factor is that Tesla Owners Club of North Texas purchases & secures liability insurance for our events - many other clubs do not.

Join us today as a contributing member and insure that you get invited to all of our Club events. Hit our website and select the MEMBERSHIP tab to join.
In case you missed it….Tesla in the News!
Please - stay safe. Wash your hands frequently! Cover your cough or sneeze! Practice "personal distancing" (we are still "social beings" and want/need to stay connected socially). Clean and disinfect surfaces daily! Vaccinate!

Important Information:

  • If you are a current owner of a Tesla (new or CPO) or are simply waiting for delivery of your new vehicle, NTTOG wants you to know you are welcomed and encouraged to attend our events and meetings. Come early to events and help us find and arrange the perfect group photo opportunity. We are ALWAYS looking for that perfect Tesla group photograph!
  • If you plan on coming to an event, please register through the Eventbrite link so we know who to expect. Some events may require additional registration for your guests. This allows us to gather an accurate headcount for meals, tickets, and other items in the planned event. If you need to cancel please do so through Eventbrite.  We cannot plan and execute events without know how many will be in attendance and if you must cancel, we need to know. Unfortunately, Eventbrite only allows cancellations from a desktop computer and not a mobile device, and you can only cancel a free order for an upcoming event.
  • Membership renewals are now being processed through the Memberful  system, so expect to see an email from Memberful, advising in advance when renewals are due. Email if you are having any trouble with your renewal or updates to your membership info, and please let us know so we can help make it a smoother process.  
  • If you are emailing us at INFO@NTTOG.COM, please sign your name to your email. We do not maintain a club contact list within our email client, and the person who replies to your message may not recognize you from your email address alone.
  • If you are a Contributing Member and have a badge, please always wear it to events. Our membership has more than doubled and wearing a badge helps you to be identified as an NTTOG member and it will help everyone to put faces with names. 
  • Most places set aside tables, valet parking and other conveniences based on registered attendees through our Eventbrite responses. As we grow we have limited space for some events, and when RSVP's reach capacity, we put other members on a wait-list. If you are unable to attend an event please cancel your RSVP so we can provide an accurate headcount to the vendors hosting us and allow those who can attend to be moved from waitlisted to registration. By setting correct expectations vendors enjoy repeating events with us. By providing an inaccurate head-count of attendees, we may look embarrassingly unorganized or nonchalant to the businesses and venues within our communities as well as prevent members who wish to attend the opportunity to do so. Please be thoughtful of our position. 
Pro Tip! It is a good idea to keep your badges in your glove box to have them handy when attending club functions or when you are representing the club.

North Texas Tesla Owners Group d/b/a Tesla Owners Club of North Texas is an independent enthusiast organization and is not affiliated with Tesla, Inc. or its subsidiaries.
