The Winning Game Plan for Successful Bar Programs:
The Affiliate Outreach Project

By Jonathan Cole

W     ith football season well under
way, you should see the cham-
pionship caliber team ABA/YLD Chair
Jeff Paskert has put together to help
your affiliate have its best year ever!
Your lineup for the Affiliate Out-
reach Project Team:
Jeff Paskert,
As Chair of the Di-
vision, Jeff Paskert
serves as coach of the
AOP Team, setting
its objectives and pick-
ing the players to ac-
complish them. This year, he has
established an ambitious set of goals
for the Division, including: (1) con-
tinuing service to the public, (2) in-
creasing service to ABA members, (3)
enhancing membership and mem-
bership communication, and (4) ad-
dressing the image of our profession.
With this charge in hand, the AOP
Team seeks to make each of these goals
a reality for all affiliates.
Jeff Snell,
AOP Director
Under Jeff Snell's di-
rection, the AOP
Team provides the
means for affiliates
to develop and im-
plement successful
public service or membership service
programs. Support from the AOP may
be financial, instructional, and/or sim-
ply inspirational, so that bar leaders
from across the country can make
their affiliates meaningful not only

in the lives of its members but also
throughout their communities. As
quarterback of the AOP Team, Jeff
Snell takes the game plan and exe-
cutes it on the field through the help
of his team captains.
The Game Plan
Championship seasons are not cre-
ated from scratch. Training methods
and successful plays obtained from
the past or other teams are used to
create winning combinations. As a re-
sult, precious time and resources are
not wasted by reinventing the wheel.
In the same way, the Affiliate Out-
reach Project (AOP) Team provides

you the plays that can be used to cre-
ate and develop successful programs
et and projects for your af-
filiate. With over 330 state
and local young lawyer bar
associations affiliated with
the ABA/YLD, the AOP
Team provides a clearinghouse
for successful ideas and programs
to be replicated across the coun-
try. The plans for projects and
programs which have put wins in
the columns of other affiliates are
yours for the taking.
As any successful football team has
both offensive and defensive squads,
the AOP Team consists of four parts,
each of which plays a vital role in the
AOP's mission:
