Brig. Gen. David Weeks, ret.

The Ouachita River Valley Association (ORVA) announces the selection of Mr. David Weeks as its Executive Director. Mr. Weeks recently retired from the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Vicksburg, Mississippi, where he served as a Program Analyst for the Executive Office, Information Technology Laboratory. Mr. Weeks retires with more than 32 years of federal civilian service.

He also retired as a Brigadier General from the U.S. Army where he served as an Engineer Officer in both active and reserve status, in peace and war, for more than 35 years.

A graduate of Louisiana Tech University with a B.S. in Accounting, Mr. Weeks also holds a Master's Degree in Strategic Studies from the U.S. Army War College. A Tallulah, Louisiana, native, David and his wife Cindy currently reside in East Carroll Parish.

Mr. Weeks is fully committed to the mission of ORVA: promoting the development of water and land resources projects that are engineered and economically feasible, environmentally sustainable and publicly acceptable that enhance the general welfare of the people in the Ouachita River basin in Arkansas, Louisiana and the Nation.

While the major focus of the Association is on the operation, maintenance and completion of the Ouachita-Black Rivers navigation project and associated infrastructure, the Association also supports economic development projects throughout the basin.
