  • AAMVA Committees & Working Groups

  • The key to any association’s viability is the involvement of its members. AAMVA’s members are engaged in program and policy development.

    AAMVA has three standing committees: Driver, Law Enforcement and Vehicle .The three committees meet both independently and in joint session. Each committee is structured to best meet the needs and address the issues of the program area and has members from nine AAMVA discipline areas.

    Subject matter experts in each of these discipline areas are represented in each of AAMVA's three standing committees:

    • Driver Licensing & Control
    • Fraud
    • ID Management
    • Information Technology
    • Law Enforcement
    • Legal Services
    • Motor Carrier Services
    • Public Affairs & Consumer Education
    • Vehicle Registration & Title

    AAMVA’s awards program fosters a tradition of excellence in the motor vehicle and law enforcement community by honoring individuals, teams, and organizations who have committed their time and resources to safety and security initiatives, outstanding customer service, and public affairs and consumer educational programs throughout North America. Each year, AAMVA receives numerous outstanding submissions in each category and through a rigorous judging process selects those that are exemplary. Awards are presented at our Regional Conferences and at our Annual International Conference.

    AAMVA Seeks Volunteers for New Working Groups

    Ignition Interlock Working Group

    Since the 2015 publication of AAMVAs Ignition Interlock Program Best Practices Guide the landscape has changed significantly with multiple jurisdictions passing varying forms of legislation governing these programs. Moreover, the 2015 Best Practices Guide did not provide best practice recommendations or solutions addressing the issue of cross-jurisdiction reciprocity. 

    AAMVA is seeking motor vehicle administration and law enforcement representatives from the AAMVA jurisdictions as well as one representative from the legal services discipline. The Working Group will be made up of both jurisdiction members and technical advisors. 

    We are seeking ten (10) jurisdictional volunteers from jurisdictions in all four (4) of AAMVA’s regions including six (6) DMV representatives involved with management, administration and/or policy level oversight of an ignition interlock program; three (3) law enforcement representatives, and one (1) additional jurisdictional DMV representative from the legal discipline. 

    Technical Advisors are being provided by the following groups:

    • Association of Ignition Interlock Program Administrators (AIIPA)
    • Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA)
    • Coalition of Ignition Interlock Manufacturer’s (CIIM)
    • Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD)

    AAMVA is seeking one additional technical advisor representing the Ignition Interlock industry that is not a member of the Coalition of Ignition Interlock Manufactures. 

    All meeting travel expenses for members are paid by AAMVA. Technical Advisors must travel to meetings at their own expense. Only one in-person meeting of the full working group is planned. It is anticipated this meeting will take place the week of January 8, 2018, in Florida (that should be taken into consideration before applying). Pre and post meeting conference calls will be scheduled on an as-needed basis. 

    If you are interested in serving on this working group, and meet the requirements found on the working group application form and attach a short biography. Please submit to Dianne Graham at committees@aamva.org.

    Suspended Driver Alternative Reinstatement Working Group

    AAMVA is seeking volunteers for a new Suspended Driver Alternative Reinstatement Working Group. 

    The Working Group will be made up of ten (10) jurisdictional volunteers from jurisdictions in all four (4) of AAMVA’s regions including seven (7) DMV representatives with experience in suspended driver reinstatement management/administration and/or policy setting; one (1) DMV legal services representative; and two (2) law enforcement representatives with line and management level experience in dealing with suspended driver enforcement.

    The anticipated period of performance is less than 12-months with two in-person meetings, and interim conference calls on an as-needed basis. Individuals applying should be aware that research and/or writing “homework” will be assigned between in-person meetings and volunteers must be willing to complete interim work as assigned by the Working Group Chair.   

    The first meeting will be held the week of February 6, 2018 and that should be taken into consideration before applying. If you are interested in serving on this working group, and meet the requirements found on the working group application form and attach a short biography.  Please submit no later than October 6, 2017 to Dianne Graham at committees@aamva.org.
