STEVENS POINT, Wis. – Jul 23, 2014 – Bob Spoerl, of Waupaca, Wis., was elected to Ducks Unlimited Inc.'s national board of directors during the organization's annual convention in St. Louis.
"The leadership of our board of directors ensures we are fulfilling our mission to conserve, restore and manage wetlands and associated habitats for North America's waterfowl," said DU CEO Dale Hall. "Our board members are not paid for their work. They volunteer their time and resources because they feel so strongly about conservation. I welcome each new member and look forward to working with them in the years to come."
Spoerl has served Ducks Unlimited in several capacities, including the conservation program committee, a volunteer group of Ducks Unlimited leaders who provide guidance to the board of directors on how best to achieve its conservation mission. Spoerl also served as the area chair for the DU Steven's Point and Plover chapters. He is senior vice president of General Beer-Northeast in Stevens Point.
"I'm happy to serve Ducks Unlimited and the conservation community," said Spoerl. "Natural resources have always been an important part of my life, and DU is making a real difference in wetland conservation."
