1991
The Wren base won ALPCA 'Plate of the Year'
attendees were able to tour the plate facility and received these as souvenirs

1991 The "Fortune 500 Forum" was held in Charleston in November, 1991. I believe that these plates were 'street-legal' for attendees
Flat, with screenprinted "EXPIRES 11/19" in lower left corner; "91" in lower right corner.

1997 from http://www.whitworthfamily.org/aamva.htm  The AAMVA (American Association Of Motor Vehicle Administrators) is a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization developing model programs in motor vehicle administration, law enforcement and highway safety, in the United States and Canada. The AAMVA has a convention every year somewhere in the United States or Canada. For many years the State/Province hosting the convention would manufacture "special" license plates for AAMVA attendees.
These plates were never 'street-legal'.

2000 no information - NAIA could stand for National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics -or- National Animal Interest Alliance -or- National Association of Independent Artists.
I have found no information on any conference or team that this plate could have been made for.


c.2003 specialty
plates "smuggled" out of the prison, presumably contraband souvenirs
