  • 2012-2014 Strategic Plan 

    The AAMVA Board of Directors adopted a three-year strategic plan in the spring of 2011, which sets a course for us to deliver member benefits in a variety of areas.

    A brochure with a summary of the plan goals and an informative powerpoint presentation provides additional detail on the plan’s four major goals, significant sub-goals and how we will measure success in each area.

    Who is AAMVA?

    The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) is a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization developing model programs in motor vehicle administration, law enforcement and highway safety. The association also serves as an information clearinghouse in these areas, and acts as the international spokesman for these interests.

    Founded in 1933, AAMVA represents the state and provincial officials in the United States and Canada who administer and enforce motor vehicle laws. AAMVA’s programs encourage uniformity and reciprocity among the states and provinces. The association also serves as a liaison with other levels of government and the private sector. Its development and research activities provide guidelines for more effective public service. AAMVA’s membership includes associations, organizations and businesses that share an interest in the association’s goals.

    AAMVA has four regions incorporated under its umbrella.
