The Affiliate Organization Council, previously known as the Multi-Sport Organization Council, is a partnership between the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee and a number of community-based organizations. The council is comprised of one representative from each affiliate organization, and each member is selected by their boards of directors or governing boards. The purpose of the AOC is to ensure effective communication between the AOs and the USOPC, and its goal is to develop national interest in sports, grow and sustain members and increase opportunities for participation in competition internationally, nationally and at the grassroots level.

To date, the AOC is comprised of leaders from 35 affiliate organizations. Partner AOs range from Boys & Girls Clubs of America to the National Association of Police Athletic League, and with more than 25,000 facilities around the U.S., AOs produce some of the largest events within the Olympic and Paralympic family.
