The 2014 Annual Operating Plan for the CWMA.

In 2011, CWMA Partners signed an MOU, which identified the partners, established the CWMA purpose and objectives, and outlined Steering Committee organization and responsibilities. The CWMA Steering Committee sets the annual operating plan, decides on priorities, discusses challenges and provides administrative oversight of the CWMA. Partners coordinate applications for state permits (i.e., MDEQ Aquatic Nuisance Control permit, etc.). Documents coordinated between members often require multiple agency reviews (including legal reviews), many edits, and results in a long process for approval and signatures from key partners.
