Poynter to provide organizational management to help grow AOJ membership and outreach efforts
Poynter will leverage its forty years of teaching experience and involvement with journalists and the media industry to assist AOJ with programming, strategic goals, events and conference management, fundraising and member recruitment and administration.
The agreement between the Association of Opinion Journalists and the Poynter Institute will extend the reach of our organization and increase our ability to offer training in the rapidly evolving craft of opinion journalism," said Lois Kazakoff, president of AOJ Foundation and deputy editorial page editor of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Executive Producer Russ Cameron said, "While it was likely Rachel's smooth delivery, on-camera ease and first-hand knowledge of her local Oregon waterways that propelled her into receiving the most votes and ultimately winning TOC's contest, it was her own one-time fishing show, which aired in summer 2005, that impressed our producers the most.

The Foundation's AOJ committee also is considering instituting a Voluntary Bar Association Community Service Grant Program, which would include one-time grants of $1,000 to $5,000 each awarded to voluntary bar associations to promote "new or significant improvement in existing charitable, community-service projects.
The idea behind the grant initiative is to get the voluntary bar associations across the state to become involved with us and to use their imagination and initiatives to leverage the funds we have available," said AOJ Committee Chair Darryl Bloodworth.
