SARAH CELEBRATES ONE YEAR! 
 
 
 
 
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Western Fairs Association Executive Director Sarah Cummings celebrates one year with the association! 

Executive Director Sarah Cummings  was an instrumental part of the strategic planning process that set the goals for the Western Fairs Association in 2018. Sarah applied those goals and successfully led the Western Fairs Association team through an incredibly successful REMIX'ed version of the 2019 Western Fairs Association Convention in Reno. 

Back at the office, Sarah and her team take a moment to celebrate their accomplishments in 2018, including record attendance at the 2019 Western Fairs Association Convention. 

At the February 2018 Board Planning Session, the Board voiced their enthusiasm in fully supporting Sarah through the executive transition process. The board will reconvene February 26 & 27 for the 2019 Board Planning  Session to determine the future vision for the association for 2019 and beyond under Sarah's leadership.
