    Got this earlier today; who will I see there?! It'd be cool to see a ton of Model S there this year rather than Jurvetson's solitary Founder #1 last year!

    Hmm. if they get the NW superchargers up by then, I'd be able to drive down in my 85...

    Be a fun road trip if nothing else.

    As a general matter, shareholder meetings are only slightly less fun than a trip to the dentist. Tesla might change that, but I wouldn't count on it.

    Last year's one wasn't bad at all. Elon gave an interesting presentation and took a number of questions after (he promised 4G in the Model S too ;)). Russ/engle posted a video here somewhere.

    Am planning on getting an autograph from him on my car if not anything else :)

    If I were driving in for just that, agreed. But always plenty of people to see, meetings I can arrange, friends I can hang with in the Bay area. :)

    That's on my birthday! But I'll be in Australia. Think I'll be missing it.

    Attending the Shareholder Conference

    Hi Gang - I hold TSLA shares through my broker (Vanguard). I would like to attend the 2013 Shareholder conference. Is there anything that would stop me from doing so? What criteria do you have to meet in order to attend the conference?

    Does one need to bring proof of owning stock? What would that be? Maybe they have a list on a computer, but how do I know if my online brokerage put me on the list?

    Is there some thread answering these questions?

    Norbert, did you get that email? I had subscribed to their investors newsletter and provided the email address for that. I'll bring a printout of the email and a snapshot of my holdings at the brokerage just in case but, I'd be surprised if they turn anyone away.

    Last year's affair - atleast as seen on the video - seemed very informal and there were also several vacant seats. It may be very different this year though.

    Robert's correct, of course, but we can bring our own fun - we ARE our own fun. It might be nice to be old school capitalists for a day who show up to raise their hand and say "I Own Tesla!" and "Thanks!" And by June 4th, there's a good chance shareholders will have A LOT more rea$on$ to say "Thanks!!" ML

    You can get drugs while at the dentist. That may tip the scales...

    Will there still also be an Earnings Call in May (20th)?
    Or will that be cancelled, because of the Annual Stockholder Meeting in June 4th?
    The time inbetween is very little.

    They are independent. Q1 earnings call is expected on or around May 6th.

    That would be fun to mesh into a Bay Area trip but I'll be attending a nephew's high school graduation instead. I hereby delegate my proxy vote to gg - as long as it includes a vote for free service plans for all VIN's < 6000.

    Easiest thing is to contact Tesla IR.
