Adam Ellison


Adam’s interest in politics began at 14 years old as he volunteered on local city council races in Maryland and later moved back to California to attend college where he joined the College Republicans at the University of the Pacific.  He was elected to three terms as president of his College Republican chapter and served on the state CR board for three years.

In 2010 Adam attended his first YR event and his years of service to the local, state, and national organization began. After moving to the Sacramento area, he joined the Young Republicans of Greater Sacramento and later joined the board where he served as president for two years. The Greater Sacramento chapter, once divided into two separate organizations, is now one of the most active YR chapters in the state.

California YRs elected Adam as their National Committeeman in 2013 and re-elected him to that post in 2015.

In November 2014 Adam was elected YRNF Western Regional Vice Chairman by the YR National Committee.  Since being elected as YRNF Vice Chairman-at-Large in 2015 Adam has focused on bringing the four YRNF regions and its leadership together to deliver more value to chapters nationwide.

In 2008 Adam got his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of the Pacific.  He has been in banking and wealth management for the last 13 years and lives in northern California with his wife, Erin, and son on the way, Cohen.
