National Association of Attorneys General
What are NAAG's mission and goals?
NAAG’s Mission Statement: The Association provides a forum for the exchange of knowledge, experiences, and insights on subjects of importance to the attorneys general of the states, territories, and district. It fosters local, state, and federal engagement, cooperation, and communication on legal and law enforcement issues. It provides training, research and analysis to attorneys general and their staff on a wide range of subjects relevant to the practice areas of the attorneys general offices. It assists in the implementation, administration and enforcement of the tobacco Master Settlement Agreement (MSA).
NAAG membership approved a five-year strategic plan in 2014. It has five priorities:
- Ensuring an organizational structure is in place that enhances member engagement and collaboration, extending across all geographical, political, and structural interests.
- Organizing and conducting NAAG meetings to be substantively relevant, fostering an atmosphere of engagement and collegiality, and providing opportunities to develop meaningful professional relationships among NAAG members.
- Increasing both the number and variety of courses offered by the National Attorneys General Training and Research Institute (NAGTRI), a NAAG branch, while maintaining the highest level of course quality.
- Continuing to provide assistance to all the states in the administration and enforcement of all aspects of the tobacco MSA.
- Ensuring the Association’s strong financial foundation with comprehensive budgetary planning and execution marked by rigorous oversight, sound financial decisions, and the pursuit of a variety of revenue-generating opportunities.
