A HUGE boon for Colorado!!

Guys American Whitewater has created an new position with in their ranks, Colorado River Stewardship Contractor! This is huge for us I believe. With all the things we are trying to get passed in this state this is something we need. We know that AW has left us hanging befor when important state senate bills have come up, but maybe this will help change all of that. It is great to know that we could have a resource of this type.

Check out the update!

I'll reserve judgement on whether this is a boon for Colorado until I see what this new position accomplishes.

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.

Cool position. I encourage people to apply. What do you guys think competitive pay for this job would be? Considering it's a non-profit org and if it was full time, maybe still only 35-45K?

The right candidate for this job won't be concerned with pay.....probably only a part-timer would rally for it.

Sounds like there will be some travel around the interior west involved. This seems like a cool deal that will let you paddle and network.
