About the APAA
The Arkansas Prosecuting Attorneys Association is a non-profit organization that was incorporated in January 1975. The purpose of the organization is fourfold:
- To promote the interests of prosecutors and the administration of Justice in Arkansas.
- To foster education, research and cooperation with other professional associations and institutions in enforcing criminal laws and improving the criminal justice system.
- To serve as a conduit for the flow of information to government officials on matters related to the field of prosecution.
- To encourage the honor, integrity, and expertise of prosecuting attorneys.
The APAA Board is made up of seven Elected Prosecuting Attorneys who meet approximately eight times each year. The Board includes a President, Vice-President, Secretary/Treasurer and four at large members who serve one year terms. Elections are in December for the upcoming year starting in January.
