Moreover, the Association continues to operate as a vehicle for the effective exchange of information among its approximately 1,000 members which primarily include current District Attorneys and their assistants; former District Attorneys and assistant district attorneys; deputy attorneys general; Assistant US Attorneys; and police chiefs.
