A Treasure Trove of Resources:
The Affiliate Outreach Project
By Toya Cirica Cook
Is your affiliate constantly searching for
ways to improve its public and
professional service programming?                        4
Are you left each year to ponder the possibilities
of new projects and sources of funding?
Do you ever wonder what other affiliates
are doing to improve their programming?
Search no more, just open the cache
and consider the possibilities that the
Affiliate Outreach Project has to offer.
Warning! What you find will definitely charm you.

Keith R. Bevan, Phoenix, Arizona
1995-96AOP Director
It is the Young Lawyers Division mis-
sion to serve as a leader in the provi-
sion of services to the public and the
profession. Created to further the two
objectives of promoting public service
and professional programming, the
Affiliate Outreach Project (AOP) has
served as the primary vehicle through
which the Division and its affiliates
have accomplished this mission.
The AOP currently assists over 330

state, local, and special interest young
lawyers organizations by helping to
create, fund, and manage effective pub-
lic and professional service programs
in communities across the nation. The
AOP gathers information on success-
ful projects and disseminates it through
several forums.
The AOP's four committees are in-
strumental in carrying out this goal.
The National Confirences Committee
produces two national conferences each
year featuring the most inmovative of
these projects. The AOP's publication,
The Affiliate, provides YLD affiliates
with program ideas and information
relevant to professional and personal
development. The Affiliate Assistance

Committee consults with affiliates de-
siring assistance in establishing their
organizations and in developing suc-
cessful public and professional service
programs. In addition, through the Sub-
grants Committee, the AOP awards
monetary grants to assist affiliates in
initiating new programs. The end re-
sult is a veritable treasure trove of suc-
cessful programming.
