in the mid-1920's to form an association, known then as the
County Attorneys of Iowa. The group held its first annual fall
conference in 1927 and the tradition of holding a spring
meeting at Okoboji began in 1962. The name of the organization
was changed to the Iowa County Attorneys Association in 1964.
The ICAA was incorporated as a nonprofit corporation in 1976

system in our state through cooperation with law enforcement
agencies, monitoring of legislation and the provision of
continuing legal education for prosecutors. In 1975, the
Association and its leadership worked hard for passage of the

providing enhanced training and other support services for
