  • 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

    Working Groups Seek Volunteers

    NMVTIS Business Rules Working Group

    The NMVTIS Business Rules Working Group was established in the summer of 2012 to focus on state business processes, policies and procedures. The Business Rules Working Group is made up of representatives from jurisdictions in all four of AAMVA’s regions. These jurisdictions represents the various modes of participation in NMVTIS, specifically, fully integrated online, batch, or some combination of the two.  The working group reviewed a number of previously identified issues and determined that the solution to many of the concerns was to create best practices to help facilitate a document to assist jurisdictions in developing their business policies and practices in a consistent manner. The intent of these best practices is to provide the title and registration program managers with information and a resource to assist them in ensuring that NMVTIS works hand in hand with the jurisdiction’s title practices.  The working group continues to identify areas where best practices are needed.  Further, the working group is working on a performance management concept to provide additional NMVTIS performance information to the jurisdictions.  The Working Group currently has three (3) vacancies.  The Working Group is seeking applications for one (1) applicant with experience of the NMVTIS business process and two (2) applicants with NMVTIS information technology experience.  Eligible applicants will be expected to attend in-person and virtual meetings.

    If you are interested in volunteering for this Working Group, please complete the application and submit to committees@aamva.org no later than February 1, 2017.  

    If you have any questions regarding the Working Group, please contact Casey Garber
