The American Sportfishing Association (ASA) has appointed Chad Tokowicz to the newly created role of Inland Fisheries Policy Manager. Tokowicz previously worked for the House Committee on the association’s Natural Resources staff.
“The ASA created this role to increase our advocacy on issues that impact freshwater fishing,” said Government Affairs VP, Mike Leonard. “Chad’s skillset will allow us to become more active in the many conservation and access issues affecting the sport.”
ASA President, Glenn Hughes, said that Tokowicz’s experience on and off the Hill, his familiarity with the issues and his enthusiasm for the sport make him a ‘great fit’ for the new position.
A Massachusetts native and avid angler, Tokowicz majored in Environmental Studies. Before working on Capitol Hill he was a Government Affairs intern at Trout Unlimited.
