Hosting Support

National AFV Day Odyssey site coordinators are provided an enormous amount of support in the planning and conduct of local events. If you are interested in hosting an Odyssey event, below are some of the tools that will be available to assist you:

  • Online Site Coordinators’ Notebook – Site coordinators are given access to event planning and coordination resources. The Site Coordinators’ Notebook contains everything that an organization would need to host an Odyssey event. Designed to help tailor events to accommodate local needs while meeting the national goals and objectives of Odyssey, the notebook can be used by novice or experienced event planners.
  • Graphics and Templates – Site coordinators are given access to graphic files and promotional templates to help advertise local events. The files and templates are fully customizable to promote the unique aspects of each local Odyssey event.
  • Event Handouts – Site coordinators are given access to handouts and online tools for use during Odyssey events. Created by the NAFTC and other AFV organizations these handouts and tools will provide Odyssey attendees with information about clean vehicle choices.
  • Order Forms – Site coordinators will be able to purchase promotional items such as notepads, tote bags, pens, posters, brochures, t-shirts, polo shirts, and banners for use at Odyssey events. Each item is branded with the Odyssey logo and graphic theme.
  • Video Files – Site coordinators will be given access to the NAFTC-produced Odyssey video and other informational/education AFV videos. The Odyssey video features footage from past Odyssey events and can be used as an advertising tool or shown at local events.
  • Post-event Materials – Site coordinators are given access to information on post-event requirements, including the Host Survey, used to report on the effectiveness of the nationwide event activities. Here site coordinators can also find the Attendee Survey to be completed by attendees at local events.

The NAFTC has coordinated Odyssey for fourteen years, and during that time has accumulated a wealth of information and resources to assist event hosts with planning their Odyssey events. In addition to the information and tools provided on the Odyssey website, site coordinators also have access to the Odyssey Team for additional assistance in planning local events.
