National Association of Attorneys General
Join NAAG for its Spring Meeting
The NAAG Annual Spring Meeting is scheduled for March 7–9 in Washington, DC and registration is now open. It is the first gathering of NAAG membership since 18 new Attorneys General took office since the November elections. Additionally, there is an Acting Attorney General in Pennsylvania and the Wyoming Attorney General designee will be sworn in early March.
The Spring Meeting is traditionally the largest public NAAG meeting and is always held in Washington, DC to allow for interaction with federal contacts. “State-Federal Cooperation in a Challenging Economy” is the theme. The Attorneys General will meet with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Federal Trade Commission Chairman Jon Leibowitz during closed sessions. Inez Tenenbaum, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission chair, will speak about the Consumer Product Safety Act. Prominent U.S. Supreme Court attorneys Ted Olson and Walter Dellinger return for the annual luncheon to discuss this term’s cases. Attendees can also look forward to a Tuesday night reception at the U.S. Supreme Court. Other open sessions will cover intellectual property, parallel proceedings, and Jobs for America. NAAG organizational partners, including the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and Fight Crime Invest in Kids, will offer project updates.
