Chapter History

The San Antonio Chapter of CCA was founded in 1979 as the Southwest Chapter of GCCA. From the very beginning, the San Antonio Chapter has been at the forefront of fundraising and policy making for CCA. Although located approximately 130 miles from the coast, the San Antonio Chapter consists of approximately 4,000 men, women and children who fish from Port O’Connor to Port Isabel. It is this diverse membership with ties to such a large portion of the Texas coast that has allowed the San Antonio Chapter to lead the way in CCA conservation efforts. Today, the San Antonio Chapter of CCA is the largest fundraising chapter in the nation, grossing over $1 million in our 2015 banquet. The San Antonio Chapter of CCA welcomes participation in its efforts from those interested in making positive impact on our coastal resources.


We are proud to once again recognize our sponsors for 2016.  Many of the companies listed below are returning sponsors from last year.  To them we say thanks again and to the new ones for this year, welcome and thank you.  These companies and individuals provide additional dollars to support CCA efforts in Texas.  We are proud to have them with us tonight.  Please take a moment to thank them during the course of tonight’s activities.
