  • 2016-2018 Strategic Framework

    Over the course of a year, the AAMVA Board of Directors, in partnership with AAMVA professional staff, developed a new Strategic Framework to guide the Association. Building on the success of the 2012–2015 Strategic Plan, the mission and vision of the organization were refined to clearly identify what is most important for AAMVA. The Strategic Framework outlines four strategic priorities that will empower the Association to provide its members and stakeholders the solutions and tools needed to accomplish their missions. The primary priority, Member-Driven Solutions, is reinforced by the other three priorities. With a culture of Excellence, the necessary Technology, and ever mindful of Fiscal Integrity, AAMVA can increase the value it delivers to its members and support their evolving business needs. Within each strategic priority, AAMVA has mapped out four goals with measurable objectives to achieve by the end of 2018.

    Collectively, these are the elements that make up the 2016–2018 Strategic Framework. 

    The AAMVA 2016–2018 Strategic Framework was approved by the Board of Directors on January 8, 2015.
