Our Story

IICMVA was formally organized in January 1968. Prior to this, various ad hoc industry committees were assembled to assist with the implementation of compulsory insurance and financial responsibility laws.

Unfortunately, ad hoc committees were not effective. Each committee composition and expertise varied in nature and they were inconsistent in results or restrictive in function. At times, these committees also delayed or inconsistently disseminated information across the industry.

It became apparent a standing committee could provide continuity, consistency, and ensure technical expertise. This committee would be familiar with issues, impacts, and resolutions implemented in other states. Thus, IICMVA was born.

Composition & Function

The basic makeup of the Committee has changed since the early days. Originally, IICMVA was built around three trade associations and a group of non-affiliated, independent insurers. The three trade associations included the National Association of Independent Insurers (NAII), the Alliance of American Insurers (AAI), and the American Insurance Association (AIA). NAII and AAI merged to form the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI).

Today, IICMVA is built around individual member insurance companies and trade associations, both of which comprise the voting members. Associate members are made up of other organizations that have a common purpose for supporting compulsory insurance laws, insurance verification, and other vehicle administration topics. The Committee shifted its focus in 2005 allowing each participating voting member to independently voice its own position on topics being discussed and decisions made. This structure led to growth and renewal of IICMVA.

IICMVA is not a lobbying organization or involved in legislation. As an advisory group, it functions as a liaison between the insurance industry and state motor vehicle departments. To encourage attendance by state motor vehicle administrators, bi-annual meetings are held in varying locations across the country. Additional meetings may be held based on business need.

Primary Focus

In its role as liaison between the industry and motor vehicle administrators, IICMVA is involved with two separate but related entities: state motor vehicle departments and AAMVA.

IICMVA primarily assists with the implementation and maintenance of compulsory insurance and financial responsibility laws. However, it also serves as an advisory group for the following motor vehicle administration issues: driver licensing, vehicle titling, vehicle registration, motor vehicle record (MVR) content, and MVR availability.

IICMVA has had a long and mutually beneficial association with AAMVA. Committee members are encouraged, although not required, to attend AAMVA conferences and workshops. In turn, AAMVA is supportive of IICMVA interests: improved motor vehicle records, single licenses for drivers, uniform title branding, improvement of communications, and assistance with motor vehicle department relations.
