Join an LCF Committee

    Joining an LCF Committee is a great way to get involved and help shape the direction of LCF Projects. If you're interested in joining a committee, please fill out this form or email Ann at [email protected].

    Workforce Development Ad-Hoc Committee: The mechanic training shortage for both diesel and alternative fuels is affecting fleets and OEMs across the country. By volunteering to serve on this committee, you will work to create a strategy to expand and improve the pipeline of trained mechanics in our state by supporting mechanic training through the community college system in the state of Louisiana.

    DC Fast Charging Ad-Hoc Committee: Last year, Louisiana submitted its proposal to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for alternative fuel corridors; the only fuel that did not qualify for signage was charging for electric vehicles. At the time of the committee’s formation, there was only one publicly accessible DC Fast Charging site in the state, and LCF is creating a DC Fast Charging Master Plan to facilitate the development of a corridor of DC Fast Charging sites. The purpose of this committee is to support LCF in their DC Fast Charging Master Plan process and provide guidance to LCF staff for their infrastructure outreach events. In addition, members of this committee will help strategize on ways to implement the completed plan and find funding for site installation.

    Membership & Fundraising Committee: In order for LCF to continue to grow and support our large territory, we must maintain a funding pipeline to support our programs and staff. Members of this committee will work with LCF staff to conduct an annual membership drive and recruit new members into the organization. The committee will also work with LCF staff to develop membership benefits that will support and attract a loyal membership base.

    Legislative Committee: Since LCF receives funding from the state, we are prohibited from any sort of lobbying activities. Our focus is on educating elected officials so that they are able to make educated decisions during the lawmaking process. This committee is an independently operating group of individuals who can work together to support and protect the industry from potentially hurtful legislation as well as promote programs that would benefit the state’s air quality and the AFV industry.
