RHINELANDER, Wis. – June 21, 2013 – "Bing" Taege, of Rhinelander, Wis., was elected to Ducks Unlimited Inc.'s national board of directors during the organization's annual convention held recently in Portland, Ore.
"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; rather 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."
Taege is a pharmacist for Shopko. In addition to being a DU member since 1967, he currently serves as the Wisconsin state chairman. In his free time, he enjoys hunting, fishing and youth baseball. Taege and his wife, Ellie, have two sons, Jeff and Jason.
