Landry Presides Over Gathering as
President of the Nation's Attorneys General
BATON ROUGE, LA – Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry this week is leading the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) Fall Meeting, a bipartisan quarterly meeting held as a training for the Attorneys General of all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealths of Puerto Rico and Northern Mariana Islands, and the territories of American Samoa, Guam, and the Virgin Islands.
Earlier this year, General Landry took over as NAAG President. In this role, he chairs all meetings held within his time as President. The NAAG Fall Meeting is unique to other quarterly meetings as it serves as the training for new Attorneys General recently elected in November.
“It is both an honor and a privilege to oversee this NAAG meeting as President,” said General Landry. “We are proud to have past and current Attorneys General and other legal and law enforcement professionals educating both veteran and incoming Attorneys General.”
Furthermore, in his position as President, General Landry is continuing to develop his presidential initiative: Emergency and Crisis Management. The Fall Meeting is an opportunity for General Landry to expand on the initiative by getting input from his fellow Attorneys General on both sides of the political aisle, all of whom have different perspectives on how to handle crises.
“As I have said before, every attorney general has gone through some crisis or natural disaster in his or her state or territory,” General Landry added. “Our primary role as Attorneys General is to keep our citizens safe; and my hope is that by discussing best practices, our States will be prepared should tragedy strike. I will continue to seek counsel from my counterparts and will remain grateful for the opportunity they have given me to serve them in this leadership role.”
