  • 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.

    AAMVA COVID-19 Health and Safety In-Person Meeting Protocol

    As AAMVA returns to in-person meetings, the health and safety of our members and staff are paramount. To promote the safety of our attendees, we have developed the following pilot Health and Safety In-Person Meeting Protocol. We will evaluate this protocol and make adjustments if necessary.
    COVID-19 Vaccination Required – All persons attending in-person meetings must be fully vaccinated as of the first day of the event (fully vaccinated is "at least two weeks have passed since receiving the final dose of an FDA-authorized COVID vaccine”). Guidance for submitting proof of vaccination will be provided for each individual meeting. AAMVA will treat the information confidentially.
    Masks Required – All meeting participants must wear a mask in meeting rooms or in any other indoor settings, when not actively eating or drinking. Masks may also be removed when presenting more than 6 feet away from other attendees.
    Social Distancing – Seating will be physically distanced as much as space will allow for meetings and meals.
    Meals – Group meals will be outdoors and/or socially distanced as much as possible. To-go meals will be provided to attendees who prefer not to participate in group meals.
    Remote Participation – For most meetings, virtual participation will be available for any attendees who cannot or choose not to attend in person.

    COVID-19 positive test results – If any attendee tests positive within two weeks after the meeting, we request that you email events@aamva.org to inform us so that we can assist with contact tracing.

    AAMVA’s awards program fosters a tradition of excellence in the motor vehicle and law enforcement community by honoring individuals, teams, and organizations who have committed their time and resources to safety and security initiatives, outstanding customer service, and public affairs and consumer educational programs throughout North America. Each year, AAMVA receives numerous outstanding submissions in each category and through a rigorous judging process selects those that are exemplary. Awards are presented at our Regional Conferences and at our Annual International Conference.  

    We presented our 2021 International Awards at the Virtual AIC. We hope to meet in person in November for our Region 3 Conference and present those regional winners there. All awards will be mailed to recipients (except for those for the Region 3 Conference). You can expect to receive them by the end of September.   

      Eligibility for AAMVA Awards Program

      • AAMVA’s Awards Program is open to all AAMVA jurisdiction members in good standing. 
      • With the exception of the Lifetime Achievement in Highway Safety awards, the content of the submissions must have been completed during AAMVA’s previous full fiscal year. For example, entries submitted for the 2021 Awards must have been conducted, produced, implemented, and/or developed in FY2020 (between October 1, 2019 and September 30, 2020). 
      • If an entry won an award in a previous year, it cannot be resubmitted unless it has substantive upgrades or developments from the original submission.  

      Schedule for 2022 AAMVA Awards Program
