Alisha Curtis

Chief Communications & Legislative Director

Arkansas Department of Commerce

My passion for public service began in my early 20s while volunteering for local candidates. That experience led to me serving as finance director for the Republican Party of Arkansas. There, I led fundraising initiatives and worked to bring high-profile leaders to the state for events. When Asa Hutchinson was elected governor in 2014, I was honored to join his staff as his executive assistant, AEDC liaison and director of special projects. In July 2019, I was appointed chief communications and legislative director for the newly created Department of Commerce.
