MISSISSIPPI ATTORNEY GENERAL IS NEW NAAG PRESIDENT
Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood has been elected president of the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG). The NAAG leadership transition took place during the organization’s summer conference on June 5 in Michigan. Attorney General Hood’s presidential initiative will focus on challenges facing the attorneys general in fighting digital crime and protecting intellectual property rights.
“It is an honor to be chosen for this position by my peers from around the country. I look forward to working with my colleagues on many issues of public concern and most especially those focusing on intellectual property theft,” Attorney General Hood said. “It is a pleasure to serve at both the state and national levels.”
South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley was elected President-Elect, Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen was elected Vice President, and Attorney General Van Hollen became Immediate Past President.
The Association elects its officers yearly, through geographical rotation by region.
The National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG), www.naag.org, was founded in 1907 to help Attorneys General fulfill the responsibilities of their office and to assist in the delivery of high quality legal services to the states and territorial jurisdictions.
