President Heidi Francis and the Ontario staff are delighted to invite you to join them in Toronto, Ontario, for the 2014 Region I Conference. The conference provides an opportunity for you and your peers to discuss relevant motor vehicle and law enforcement related issues. As with every AAMVA conference, the ability to network is one of the most beneficial experiences, and this year's regional conference provides many valuable interactive and learning opportunities – both with jurisdiction and industry representatives. Jurisdictional attendees can learn about the successes and challenges of others, share ideas, build relationships, and discover the many products and services provided by our industry partners that can assist in your mission. Industry attendees will have the opportunity to meet with key players in the motor vehicle and law enforcement arena. Join us in Toronto, Ontario, and participate in the sessions focusing on “Transportation Tomorrow - Modernize, Measure, Connect.”

There are so many things to do in Toronto, that we want you to have information so you can explore on your own. We will host a Meet & Greet with other companions and Tourism Toronto so you can become familiar with all we have to offer. The Meet & Greet will follow the Opening Ceremonies on Monday, July 28.

There are four newly proposed policies for AAMVA this year. As part of the Annual Membership and Region I business meeting to be held Wednesday afternoon, an AAMVA Committee member will present the new policies proposed by our Region. You may download all of the policies for review prior to the meeting. We appreciate feedback from jurisdiction members on ALL the policies, as your feedback will be germane to the Board decisions on Policy adoption. Region I members will specifically be asked to vote for approval on those proposed by Region I.
