Jim McPherson, Executive Director

On March 10, I had the privilege of joining the National Association of Attorneys General staff as Executive Director. I am very excited and grateful for the opportunity to work with such a talented group of professionals who are dedicated to providing legal support to the Attorneys General and their staffs serving the people of their states, territories and district.

NAAG’s Mission: “To facilitate interaction among Attorneys General as peers. To facilitate the enhanced performance of Attorneys General and their staffs. To foster an environment of cooperative leadership.” Those are noble and attainable goals that the NAAG staff works very hard every day to capture.

NAAG employees work across a wide spectrum of subject matter areas to provide cutting-edge training and establish a forum for cooperation and mutual support. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of the Attorneys General and their staffs as they respond to the ever-increasing demands of their clients and constituents. The future holds countless opportunities and it is an honor and a privilege to serve as Executive Director of our association.
