My travels this year have given me the opportunity to spread the word about the benefits of AJA membership. My message has been simple: Every judge needs to belong to a national judges’ organization that represents all judges, not just a narrow section or division of judges and not just a bar association with a small minority of judge members. Those kinds of organizations have a role to play, but they can’t speak beyond their narrow focus or with one voice. The AJA can do both.
