The American Sportfishing Association(ASA) is pleased to announce that Connor Bevan has joined ASA’s Government Affairs staff as the new Inland Fisheries Policy Manger.
Bevan is a California native and a graduate of Davidson College in North Carolina with a major in Political Science. Bevan started his career as an intern with the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation in Washington, D.C.
“I’m excited to join ASA’s Government Affairs team and look forward to championing inland recreational fishing issues at the federal and state levels,” said Bevan. “As a lifelong angler, I understand the importance of maintaining and ensuring access to our nation’s waterways, as well as the urgent conservation needs of fisheries across the country.”
He most recently worked as a Research Fellow for the National Hydropower Association, focusing on non-powered dam development to limit the impact of hydropower on fisheries. He previously worked on a Senate campaign and held a communications and fundraising fellowship with Salzburg Global Seminar, an international leadership development organization.
Bevan is based in ASA’s headquarters in Alexandria, Va.
