  • Discussion Groups


  • An AAMVA Yahoo! Group is an e-mail and Web-based discussion group—a forum to exchange ideas, concerns and questions. Use the AAMVA Online Survey Tool to survey the entire membership, but use these Yahoo! Groups to chat with fellow members informally and share information.

    Please take a moment to read the Listserve Rules and Etiquette.

     

    You may participate solely via e-mail, solely via the Yahoo! Groups Web site, or through a combination of both e-mail and the Web site.

    To participate via e-mail:

    1. Send an e-mail to the appropriate Yahoo! Group moderator requesting to join the group. 
    2. When you receive an e-mail invitation, click "Reply" and then "Send". DO NOT TYPE ANYTHING IN THE SUBJECT LINE OR THE E-MAIL MESSAGE. 
    3. You will then receive a "Welcome" message via e-mail that you have joined the group, and you may begin sending messages to the group. Enjoy!
