Arkansas Automobile Dealers Association (AADA) President Greg Kirkpatrick recently spoke at the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) Region 2 Conference on a panel discussing Interstate Vehicle Transactions.
AAMVA represents officials in the United States and Canada who administer and enforce motor vehicle laws. They also serve as an information clearinghouse developing model programs and policies in motor vehicle administration, law enforcement, and highway safety. This year AAMVA is celebrating its 90th anniversary. Arkansas is in Region 2, and several state officials were on hand for the conference.
Mr. Kirkpatrick spoke about Interstate Vehicle Transactions, which many times involve buyers in one jurisdiction and sellers in another. Consumers and dealers are not afraid to make these long-distance deals but jurisdiction laws, rules, and policies may be challenged by how these transactions have changed vehicle sales and titling governance. Attendees heard from those in vehicle sales, investigations, and legal review to learn how to prepare and adapt for continued growth of vehicle interstate commerce.
AADA enjoys a close working relationship with the Department of Finance and Administration-Office of Motor Vehicles, and this event was a great opportunity to continue to grow this collaborative partnership.
