Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn was selected to serve as vice president for the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA). The announcement was made Saturday at the organization’s annual Summer Summit in Quebec City, Quebec.
Flynn was appointed chairman of the metro section, a subcommittee of the NDAA that focuses on criminal justice-related issues that affect prosecutors in major cities throughout the U.S. For the past year, Flynn has served as an at-large member of the board of directors.
Earlier this month, Flynn attended the District Attorneys Association of the State of New York Summer Conference in Cooperstown, where he was appointed to serve as a vice president. The nomination places him in line to serve as president of the organization. He has held a seat on its board of directors for a year.
