As a CVSA associate member, you are among the nearly 3,000 members who are committed to helping the Alliance achieve its goal of uniformity, compatibility and reciprocity of commercial motor vehicle inspections and enforcement throughout Canada, Mexico and the U.S. Below are just some of the benefits of being a CVSA associate member.
