MEMPHIS, Tenn. Sept. 30, 2019 James Meadows was named Ducks Unlimiteds (DU) Regional Director of the Year for his outstanding efforts as a staff member in Region 7, an area that encompasses the southeastern United States.

"James keeps his volunteers engaged and focused on supporting the cause while having fun, said Brett Baker, DU director of fundraising and volunteer relations. Because of his dedication and drive, the Lowcountry of South Carolina remains a top fundraising area for Ducks Unlimited."

Meadows, a resident of Goose Creek, S.C., covers eastern South Carolina and works with local volunteer committees hosting fundraisers for the 82-year-old conservation organization. Meadows also received the Sustained Growth and Grand Slam Awards. The Sustained Growth Award is achieved by recording budget income growth in three consecutive fiscal years. The Grand Slam Award is given to regional directors who achieve net growth in event income, event attendance, volunteers and existing business and have more new than lost business.

DU is the leader in wetlands conservation and volunteers are the heart and soul of the organization. Through more than 4,000 local fundraising events DU volunteers generate more than 500,000 memberships and more than $72 million annually.
