LITTLE ROCK – Ducks Unlimited has elected Vince Callahan of Proctor, to serve as an at-large member of the organization's national board of directors.

 "Vince has a long history as an active DU volunteer and impressive leader," said DU President John Newman. "He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the team, and we're proud to have him on board."

Callahan owns Ace Rewinding in West Memphis. As a successful business owner with management, sales and customer satisfaction skills, he has the knowledge and leadership ability to encourage and strengthen DU's volunteers. He has been a Ducks Unlimited volunteer himself since 1990 and has served in numerous volunteer leadership positions at the state and local levels.
