Being a voice of influence for sensible public policy that benefits the long-term interests of the industry is the heart of ASA’s government affairs efforts.
ASA – Representing You
Since 1933, advocacy on public policy has been a core function of ASA, carried out by our government affairs team to promote and protect the interests of our industry and sportfishing itself.
We monitor proposed legislation and regulations to evaluate their impact on ASA members and organize coalitions with other outdoor recreation groups to address issues of common interest that advance our public policy agenda.
Your Voice. Amplified.
ASA Member organizations and employees can directly communicate with policy-makers through the Keep America Fishing online portal. It’s simple and effective.
We all know it’s the voice of the people that will influence positive change. That’s where Keep America Fishing and our network of supporters comes into play.
The politics of fishing transcend borders. No matter where your customers fish or what species they’re targeting, there is legislation pending that affects their access, seasons, bag limits and the gear they use. All of this can significantly impact the way you do business.
As an ASA member, you can help influence that legislation. As your partner, ASA has the tools to help.
