Message From The President



Welcome to the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Driving School Association of the Americas. It is truly an honor to serve as president of this great organization, well respected and admired both within the Americas and globally.

I am inspired by the commitment and contributions of all our past presidents and past members of the DSAA, Board and Executive Committee. I look forward to continuing this important work towards fulfilling the mission of the DSAA.

DSAA is dedicated to learning, sharing ideas and ensuring that our delivery of driver education in this new technological environment will not only survive, but thrive.

As we prepare for the exciting future of driver education, let us work together to find common ground, pursue important goals and collectively embrace emerging technologies while also supporting the best elements of tried-and-true conventional learning.

I’d like to take a moment to express my gratitude for how our DSAA committees have been responding, and to reflect on what guides our decision-making, now and during the challenging times ahead.

I truly appreciate the hard work and dedication shown by our committees in the past couple of years. They have worked tirelessly to develop and implement ways to support our members and partners and help sustain their interest in DSAA.

We are deep into the planning for new and exciting improvements to your membership experience: from revamping our web site for smoother, mobile-friendly interactions to creating short, on-demand webinars on a wide variety of topics.

In conclusion, a huge thank you to our members, supporters and partners. None of DSAA’s accomplishments over the past 50 years would have been possible without your steadfast loyalty, support and unwavering commitment to our mission. On behalf of the entire Board of Directors, I wish to express our deepest gratitude.

Together, we look forward to continuing this important work for many, many years to come.
