Emily Beach brings experience from the archery industry.

The American Sportfishing Association has named Emily Beach as the group’s recruitment, retention and reactivation director.

Beach has spent the last 16 years with the Archery Trade Association and developed the Explore Bowhunting, Explore Bowfishing and Explore Archery programs. She has also assisted USA Archery in developing its instructor certification programs. EB, EBF and EA are in schools, summer camps, community parks and recreational programs nationwide.

“I’m glad to join the ASA team,” said Beach in a statement. “Helping people of all ages find their way to engage in the outdoors is my passion. How can we expect kids to take care of tomorrow’s environment if they’re not engaging in the outdoors today? I’m eager to start tackling the challenges.”
