The 15-member board meets quarterly and oversees administration of the IOLTA program, engages in fundraising and more. The AAJF has disbursed more than 12 million dollars in grants to support civil legal aid since its establishment. The board consists of five committees including: an executive committee, a governance committee, a grant committee, a finance committee and a resource development committee.

Pawlik is also a member of the Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association and the Arkansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
