I've been disappointed in the past that the CWWA isn't more active and helpful in river issues (other than the damned Grand Canyon), so it's good to see the AWW play a larger role. Perhaps some of these issues need AWW's expertise and experience.
A lot of what CW has done had been behind the scenes in the past. You would not know about it unless you were directly involved in the particular issue. There have been several CW member attorneys who have donated a lot of free time for access related issues.
I recently took over the Access Director position and am definitely open to hearing any input that people have for ways that we can help out.
I recently attended the meeting that AW held for input on this position and was very excited to see that they are taking an interest in our state.
Remember, CW is a completely volunteer organization so it is always going to be difficult for us to take on full time issues. We have to earn a living too!! What we can do is mobilize a large group if need be.
Again, I welcome your input on issues that we need to address.
