The Association of Prosecuting Attorneys, Inc. (APA) is incorporated in the commonwealth of Virginia and headquartered in Washington, D.C. The association is a nonprofit charitable organization that is supported by member contributions as well as government grants and funding from both foundations and the private sector. Prosecutors direct the organization through a volunteer board of directors led by the Chair of the Board, Jackson County, Missouri Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker and Vice Chairman, Multnomah County, Oregon District Attorney Rod Underhill. APA is the only national organization to represent and support all prosecutors – including both appointed and elected prosecutors, as well as their deputies and assistants – whether they work as city attorneys, tribal prosecutors, district attorneys, state attorneys, attorneys general, or U.S. Attorneys. APA’s activities include acting as a global forum for the exchange of ideas, enabling prosecutors to collaborate with all criminal justice partners, conducting timely and effective technical assistance, and providing access to technology for the enhancement of the prosecutorial function.
