CCA Maryland is proud to announce the hiring of David Sikorski as its next Executive Director. David officially joins us after more than a decade of work as a volunteer with the association. David’s background makes him a strong choice to lead our state chapter. He is native Marylander, a passionate and experienced sportsman, and has been a tireless volunteer for CCA Maryland. As a longtime participant and current Chair of our Government Relations Committee, David has a thorough understanding of the many issues that affect our fisheries.
He is a member of the Striped Bass and Atlantic Menhaden Advisory Panels for the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission, the Chairman of the Sport Fisheries Advisory Commission to Maryland DNR, and has been a frequent attendee to the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council in recent years. In his work with these councils and commissions David has helped CCA Maryland protect striped bass, yellow perch, menhaden, and many other species of forage along our coast. David is also a past Annapolis Chapter President, and is deeply involved with our oyster advocacy and habitat work.
As an active member of CCA Maryland, David has demonstrated a commitment to our membership and stakeholders. With this new chapter we are excited to build our membership, proactively strengthen our advocacy positions, expand habitat work, and continue our work to Conserve, Promote, and Enhance Maryland’s Marine Resources.
