For the first time ever, a Georgia Ducks Unlimited license plate will soon be available. With the help of the Georgia General Assembly, a bill was passed during the 2018 Legislative Session making the license plate a reality.
The best news?
The proceeds from the sale of these tags will go right back in the ground to support wetlands conservation in the State of Georgia!
We were excited to unveil the design for the Georgia DU license plate at our State Convention Thursday 7/16/20. Once we meet the minimum requirements, we can begin to put license plates like the example above into production.
Having completed the design and the legislative steps, the rest is up to us. We must presell 1,000 tags at $25/tag to illustrate to the Georgia Department of Revenue that there is truly interest in this tag. We started preselling tags on July 1, 2019. I anticipated that the sale would be very brief, and we would have tags in production in no time. That has not been the case. Currently, we sit at around 500 of the required 1,000 commitments.
The clock is ticking as we must have the 1,000 commitments by July 2021. We have roughly 350 days to obtain the remaining 500 commitments or we lose this opportunity to have Georgia DU license plates.
Now is the time that all of us that have been waiting on the design to make our purchase to complete the form and formally commit to the license plate. Now is the time that we want to ask you to share the opportunity to secure a tag with your friends, family, duck hunting buddies and those who value our mission. You can commit to multiple plates; one for each vehicle you own.
Once we have commitments for 1,000 tags, we will follow up with you to issue your tag claim voucher, which you will use to take to your local tag office. If for some reason we do not reach 1,000 tags, you will receive your money back.
If you do not want to have one of these tags on your vehicle but would still like to see them on the roadways, you too can make the $25 commitment to help us reach the required 1,000.
It is very simple from here. We have less than 12 months to secure the remaining 500 commitments or we lose this opportunity that so many have waited many years to become a reality.
Please make your commitment today to support wetlands conservation in Georgia.
