NBAA Welcomes Ashleigh de la Torre As Legislative Affairs Director

Former Washington Staffer, Aviation Lobbyist Comes From ACI-NA

The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) announced last week that veteran Capitol Hill staffer and aviation lobbyist Ashleigh de la Torre will join the Association's staff on December 4 as director, legislative affairs.

"Ashleigh brings a solid grasp of aviation policy and the congressional process to NBAA," said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. "She will enhance the work of the Association to promote the interests of our Members in the federal policy arena, and I am pleased to have her aboard."

Before coming to NBAA, de la Torre served as director of the Airport Legislative Alliance for the Airports Council International - North America (ACI-NA). There, she oversaw the alliance's legislative advocacy work, managed the association's political action committee and provided legislative updates to association members.

Prior to her work with ACI-NA, de la Torre served as legislative assistant to US Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS), where she managed the senator's work on transportation policy --including aviation policy -- as well as homeland security policy and other issues.

De la Torre holds a Bachelor of Arts in political science and Bachelor of Science in journalism from the University of Kansas and a Master's in public administration from the George Washington University.

Founded in 1947 and based in Washington, DC, the National Business Aviation Association, Inc. (NBAA) represents more than 7,000 companies and provides more than 100 products and services to the business aviation community, including the NBAA Annual Meeting & Convention.
