  • The key to any association’s viability is the involvement of its members. AAMVA’s committee and working group members lead program and policy development. AAMVA's standing committee structure reflects the three core business functions of the membership. There are three standing committees: Driver, Law Enforcement and Vehicle. Each committee has members from nine AAMVA discipline areas. In addition, the committees oversee the many working group projects.

    Learn more about Committees and Working Groups. 

    Direction and leadership for AAMVA begins with the Board of Directors. The decisions of the board, which holds meetings throughout the year, are executed by the AAMVA President and CEO along with AAMVA staff.
