  • AAMVA Board of Directors Meets

    The AAMVA International Board of Directors held their annual Spring meeting last week in Ottawa, Ontario. Holding the meeting in Canada allowed the Board to hold additional strategic conversations with the leadership of the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) and to visit the Canadian Parliament. The Board also received briefings by top agency representatives from Transport Canada and US Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.  The Board's business included providing strategic direction on AAMVA initiatives and approving multiple committee products for publication that will be available to members later this summer. The Board will next meet in August in Williamsburg, VA, just prior to the 2016 Annual International Conference. 

    NMVTIS Business Rules and NMVTIS Law Enforcement Working Groups Meet

    The NMVTIS Business Rules and Law Enforcement Working Groups both met in Washington, DC on April 19 & 20, 2016.

    The NMVTIS Business Rules Working Group had a full agenda, led by new Chair Tony Hall (Texas Department of Motor Vehicles). The successful and productive meeting included a detailed discussion to define the requirements and framework for the performance management concept for the state program that will be used to prepare an estimated fiscal impact statement (as requested by the Vehicle Standing Committee). The group also discussed other current topics of concern such as state use of JSI data and branding best practices. The next face-to-face meeting for the Working Group is slated to take place in October 2016.

    The NMVTIS Law Enforcement Working Group received important program updates from AAMVA and the U.S. Department of Justice before spending time updating the working group's goals and action plans. In addition, the two working groups spent one-half day in joint session becoming familiar with each other's accomplishments, future direction, and exchanging ideas of mutual benefit.
