"Both Chris and Santiago have diverse DMV experience, which will be valuable as they engage in program and policy development," said Driver Services Manager Ed Pemble.

The Law Enforcement Standing Committee's aim is to inspire collaboration between law enforcement and driver/motor vehicle administrators to improve highway and public safety. The Vehicle Standing Committee will identify, develop, and champion vehicle safety and consumer-protection initiatives, and promote reasonable and uniform best practices and laws throughout member jurisdictions.

The appointments for both Kiyoshi and Palomera extend through August 2017.

They will each have the opportunity to "influence policy, develop best practices and make recommendations on issues most important to AAMVA members as we work toward our vision of 'safe drivers, safe vehicles, secure identities, saving lives,' said AAMVA Vice Chair of the Board Richard Holcomb.
