The Montana County Attorneys Association, at its 2013 annual meeting and summer training seminar, elected as its president Rich Batterman, county attorney for Fallon and Carter Counties. Mr. Batterman assumed the role as president after a tenure of eight years on the board of directors. His term as president will be two years.
The Montana County Attorneys Association is a private nonprofit member organization comprised of county attorneys throughout the state. The Association focuses on two primary goals: to provide training and education for county attorneys and their staff members, and to provide leadership in identifying concerns about public safety. The Association works collaboratively with other public officials to develop solutions through the legislative process as well as other, less formal, means. For example, the Association’s 2013 legislative package of bills addressed the serious issue of child abuse. County attorneys often serve as members on other boards and advisory councils, like the Montana Board of Crime Control and Peace Officers Standards and Training Council, as two examples. The Association works collaboratively with the Attorney General, with other state and local government officials, and with members of the public to address the continuing needs of the state and its citizens.
For the next two years, Mr. Batterman will provide leadership to his Association by playing a key role in helping to develop ideas for training seminars and to develop and seek the passage of the Association’s legislative agenda in the 2015 Montana legislative session
