This is an old post that might clear things up for you... see if its what your looking for! Gater

Snap Dragin
I did not intend to drag you back into this I was trying to make a point.! Just so you and everyone else understands....

CCA is run by the membership members, the paid staff such as the Executive Director, Assistant Directors, the STAR Director and any other paid staff in that office do not have a vote in this issue or any other. Input can be given from the staff, biologist, lobbyist and others but its the committees, boards and executive committes that make the decisions. These committes and boards are made up of due paying volunteers such as KJON in Sabine. Every Chapter President is a voting member, I think there are around 50 Chapters give or take. The phone numbers for these individuals are posted on the website and many have cell, home, and work numbers there. There are also voting members that are elected to these boards on a 2-3 year running term. If you are a paying member your membership card states what Chapter you belong too.

Just because someone in that office did not return a call or respond to an email does not mean they do not care about your concerns. They are busy, they do a bunch of traveling and cannot respond to each and every communication but believe me your voice is heard. That is why there is a statement concerning this issue on the website.

Once again, I disagree with the stance that CCA has taken but I will not bash them because of it. I support the organization because of what they have done and continue to do. It's your right not to support them if you so choose and I respect that. I don't offshore fish much anymore but I understand your frustrations and concerns and I'll keepy fingers crossed that TP&WD does whats right and keeps things the way they are. Ga

In that case could you please tell me who is the "they" who establish CCA positions on issues. Particularly, who determined their position on having Texas adopt the federal Snapper and Shark regulations.

Charlie has expressed his feelings that Dr. Nelson came up with the position. Is it possible that one person has decided the policy position for all of the chapters and the tens of thousands of members on an issue this far reaching and important. Surely no organization representing sportsmen would allow that.

Guess you subscribe to the National Enquirer too?

Little you say is based on facts, except the fact you're angry at CCA. That is your right and anyone elses too, but don't try to make yourself out to be innocent of the stuff you accuse others of doing. You could wind up losing your fan base.

Snap I don't say things that are unreasonable to protect anyone. Statements here about who started CCA, the Redfish and Trout are overpressured and thus we have reduced limits and there are many other statements here that are false. I'm not going to give you a bunch of BS, I have no reason to. I said it before, I don't know squat about Snapper and it's problems or how to fix them but I do know CCA and I do know something about our inshore fishery. So before you make UNREASONABLE statements like the one above, know what you are talking about first. Gater

I know you are exactly right. I just think he probably had plenty input on the CCA position. Yes I know all about Dr. Nelson

Dr. Nelson is the guy who usually (last time I checked) addresses the Gulf of Mexico Fisheries Management Council at their meetings representing CCA's position. He used to be the head of the Florida Wildlife Commission until forced to step aside.

rodwade Pocboy,
As a board member can you find out the organizational structure of the company? It seems CCA has no problem sending emails and letters when they are having an auction or a fund raising event, seems an online poll of members should not break the bank. I mean you can even use free online polling services for it.

CHARLIE OK Poc, thanks for the quick and honest reply. Hope the basketball team does well. Good fishing.
