Political Clout - A Powerful Force for Change

Political clout derives from a large membership and intelligent, knowledgeable, and active leadership. Fisheries issues are political, and CCA Washington wages the political battles on behalf of fishermen in four arenas.

- The Washington State Legislature: CCA maintains an effective state legislative lobbying and legal presence year around, both during the legislative sessions and throughout the rest of the year in one-on-one meetings with lawmakers.
- The Fish and Wildlife Commission: CCA's lobbyist and volunteers testify frequently throughout the year at Fish and Wildlife Commission meetings.
- The Fish and Wildlife Department: CCA's volunteers interact regularly with Fish and Wildlife 
department leaders and staff.
- Fish and Wildlife Advisory Committees: Numerous CCA members are actively involved in nearly twenty different advisory boards and commissions that provide advise and counsel to the Fish and Wildlife.
