IWPA Hires New Manager of Government and Public Affairs 

Alexandria, Virginia – The International Wood Products Association (IWPA) announced today the hiring of Ashley Amidon as the new IWPA Manager of Government and Public Affairs, replacing outgoing Manager, Brigid Shea.

Miss Amidon supported five Members of Congress as their DC-based fundraiser with Hammond & Associates. Prior to that, she worked on behalf of the Republican National Committee and on a variety of State and National political campaigns after receiving her Master of Arts in Globalization and Governance from the University of Hull in the United Kingdom.

“Miss Amidon’s broad global perspective and detailed understanding for the ways of Washington benefits IWPA greatly,” said Brent McClendon, IWPA Executive Vice President. McClendon continued, “She comes to the job already prepared to work with Congress, regulatory agencies, and a wide-variety of international stakeholders on policies that advance global trade in wood products.

Miss Amidon commented, “The shifting political climate on Capitol Hill brings trade and environmental policies front-and-center.” Amidon continued, “I am excited to work with IWPA members to assure we continue to project a strong voice for responsible policies and programs that grow the North American and global market for legal and sustainable hardwood and softwood products.”
