VANCOUVER WASH. – Tracy Woodard, director of government affairs for Nissan’s North American Operations, will be the keynote speaker for Washington State University Vancouver’s MBA Stakeholder Series fall presentation at 7 p.m., Monday Oct. 31 in the Undergraduate Classroom building, room 1.
 
This event is free and open to the public. Woodard presentation is called “The Nissan LEAF: Creating Partnerships, Changing the Future.”
 
The Nissan Leading, Environmentally Friendly, Affordable Family Car (LEAF), is a five-door hatchback electric car introduced in the United States in December 2010. As an all-electric car, the LEAF produces no tailpipe pollution or greenhouse gas emissions at the point of operation and reduces dependence on petroleum.
 
Jerry Goodstein, professor of management at WSU Vancouver, said Woodard’s presentation will provide insight into Nissan’s efforts to build support from a variety of public and private stakeholders in order to develop and release the LEAF.
