WESTERN FAIRS ASSOCIATION BOARD PLANNING
 
 
 
 
The 2019 Western Fairs Association board planning session took place at the Western Fairs Association headquarters in Sacramento, California on February 26 and 27th. The Western Fairs Association Board Directors gathered together for a two-day strategic planning workshop led by facilitator Becky Bailey-Findley.

The annual planning meeting included: 2018, a year in review; 2019 Convention review; and, strategic planning for Western Fairs Association’s future. The board reviewed the associations mission statement, reviewed the current bylaws, identified six vision statements, and set goals for the staff for the working year ahead.

The Board celebrated record high Convention attendance at the 2019 Western Fairs Association Convention, noted the success of the REMIXed convention events including the President's Reception and Showcase, and, the Wine and Cheese/Auction Events. The board appreciated the new Peer-to-Peer networking meetings, and the Convention Welcome for new attendees.

The Board and staff thanked Pat Conklin for her year of leadership in 2018 and is energized moving in to President Carrico’s year ahead. More great things are set to come from Western Fairs Association in 2019 and beyond.
