A Letter from your President
The 2016 Virginia Association of Fairs Conference was a huge success with many thanks to our staff, Board of Directors, and the scores of volunteers! I have had feedback from fair members stating to me that is was the best conference ever. Again thanks to all who helped make this conference a huge success.
Even though it is cold and blustery, it will not be long before the flowers are blooming, birds will be singing and fair time will be upon us. Time for long hours of work with little or no pay but our love for the fair keeps us going. Hopefully our conference gave you the opportunity to network with others, exchange ideas, learn from speaker sessions and take home ideas to help better manage your fair.
It is an exciting time at the VAF. January 2017 conference will be our 100th year. I encourage anyone that has any information or photos of early years of the VAF to contact us with that information.
As always, the VAF staff and I aim to assist you and your fair wherever needed. Please do not hesitate to contact any of us for help.
Remember, the fair is about fun. Let’s make fun happen again this year!!!
