The new [AOPJ format
will provide current
and future affiliate
leaders with more
specific advice and
practical, proven so-
lutions to organiza-
tional problems.

Rick Bien
AOP Director
[The AOP provides]
enough ideas to plan
a well-rounded bar
year with programs
designed to support
both the general pub-
lic and the affiliate's
own membership.

As professionals, at-
torneys are supposed
to help the public,
however, it is impor-
tant that we also pro-
vide programs
designed to help our
own membership.

Many of my closest
friendships are those
that I have developed
during my participa-

don't have an an-
swer, they'll help find
someone who does.

One-stop shopping is how Rick
Bien, the Affiliate Outreach Proj-
ect's (AOP) director, describes this
year's AOP. The rationale is simple.
With the inclusion of what was for-
merly the Membership Support
Network (MSN) into the AOP, the
ABA Young Lawyers Division
(YLD) can now provide affiliate
leaders with everything they need
to operate a productive affiliate
from one source-the AOP.
Much has been written and dis-
cussed about the MSN-AOP merger,
and Pamela Roberts, YLD Chair, has
stressed that effectively merging
the MSN and AOP will be her
administration's primary objective.
That's good news for bar leaders
who are charged with running ef-
ficient and effective affiliates.
Pamela Roberts hopes that the new
AOP will make it easier for affili-
ates of all sizes and budgets to take

advantage of the AOP's substantial
Thus, affiliate leaders who are
nagged by those inevitable ques-
tions (What have I gotten myself
into? What should be my affili-
ate's goals and objectives and how
can they be achieved?), help is now
easier to obtain than ever before.
From public service project infor-
mation, to membership support
program ideas, to bar management
guidance, the AOP has it all.
Don't Reinvent the Wheel!
At the beginning of every bar year,
all affiliate leaders are faced with
the same dilemma-what type of
projects or programs should the af-
filiate implement? The AOP is the
place to start for a wealth of ideas
and resources to implement them.
