Position Title: 
Executive Director

As Executive Director of ASBPA, Derek Brockbank is responsible for the growth, strategic planning, and government affairs goals of the nation’s leading organization advocating for beach and coastal restoration. With a background in climate and coastal conservation and experience as a grassroots organizer, Derek is getting ASBPA to lead coastal communities and coastal decision-makers in the tough but necessary conversations about how they will address sea level rise, increasing storm intensity, and other climate impacts.

Prior to starting with ASBPA, Derek worked as campaign director for a coalition effort to restore the Mississippi River Delta and Coastal Louisiana, and was part of a gulf-wide campaign to pass the RESTORE Act, securing billions of dollars for Gulf Coast restoration. This followed up on his work with National Wildlife Federation as climate safegaurds manager, where his primary focus was securing climate adaption in federal cap and trade legislation.
