Van Hollen Elected Vice President of the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG)

 

MADISON – Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has been elected to serve as the Vice President of the National Association of Attorneys General.

 

“I am honored that my colleagues have selected me. As is so often true with law enforcement, together we can achieve more than individually. From human trafficking, and school safety to Internet Crimes Against Children and election reform, NAAG is a great resource,” said Van Hollen.

 

Founded in 1907, the National Association of Attorneys General serves as a key resource to assist Attorneys General and their staffs to respond effectively to emerging state and federal legal issues.

 

In his role as Vice President Van Hollen will also serve as a member of the Executive Committee of NAAG.

 

The term of the Vice President is one year. The Executive Committee is charged with the management of NAAG operations and yearly approval of a program plan of goals, objectives and activities to guide its work. The Executive Committee is comprised of the four NAAG officers, four regional delegates and three presidential appointees and the chair of the NAAG Mission Foundation, which supports the work of the Association.
