The National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) was founded in 1907 to help attorneys general fulfill the responsibilities of their office and to assist in the delivery of high-quality legal services to the states and territorial jurisdictions.
The National Attorneys General Training & Research Institute (NAGTRI) was created in 2007. The NAGTRI mission is to provide high-quality, non-partisan, and innovative training, research and other developmental resources to support state and territorial attorneys general offices (AGOs). It currently conducts over 130 trainings a year, provides an extensive wiki research tool to AGOs, and produces numerous legal newsletters and publications. NAGTRI continues to steadily grow and expects to launch numerous new initiatives in the next few years. The NAGTRI vision is to be recognized as the premier national organization for training and research throughout the government legal, law enforcement, and prosecutorial arenas.
The NAGTRI Director will lead a growing team of attorneys and support staff in ensuring the vision, priorities, and initiatives of the NAGTRI strategic plan are met. The NAGTRI 2017 Strategic Plan can be found here. The NAGTRI Director will recognize and execute the vision of NAGTRI as set out by the NAAG/NAGTRI Training Committee, NAAG Executive Director and NAAG Deputy Executive Director, and the NAGTRI National Advisory Board, and enhance that vision with their own.
The ideal candidate for NAGTRI Director is a person of strong leadership skills, vision, energy, initiative, integrity, and humility with a track record that bears witness to such qualities. He/she should also have a strong ability to build bridges, forge partnerships, and effectively grow and manage projects. Potentially successful candidates will be individuals who are never satisfied with the status quo.
Frequent domestic travel and some international travel are required.
The NAGTRI Director will be a member of the NAAG executive staff leadership team and will report to the NAAG Deputy Executive Director.
Please submit cover letter, resume, and one writing sample via email to Debbie Tang at Bridge Partners: email@example.com. Please use “NAGTRI Director” as the subject line.
