  • MissionVision - (simple)

    AAMVA’s Strategic Framework guides the Association’s projects, priorities, and activities by providing direction and expectations represented in AAMVA’s annual operating plan. It focuses on goals and outcomes to develop initiatives and measures that enable the Association to achieve its mission and vision. The Association has begun to formulate a new strategic framework and the current framework has been extended to 2022 in recognition of the unusual nature of operating during the pandemic. The 2019-2022 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.

      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, provincial, and territorial 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.
