Fair Association invites public to join association at Thursday’s annual meeting

The Five State Fair Association meeting starts at 6 p.m Thursday at the Seward County Activity Center.

“It’s our anual meeting. There will be supper served at 6. And then we have the annual meeting right after that,”  fair board chair Jennifer Malin said. “There will be two board members elected by the association.

“And then after the association meeting, we go directly into our first fair board meeting for 2014. And that’s where we will elect our officers,” she added.

Malin explained how the fair board members are elected.

“Well the association – if anybody wants to be on the board – somebody nominates them, and then the association members vote on them.

“There’s nine total board members. The commissioners have already picked their four. And then the association picks five,” Malin continued.

“Three of them were elected last year (by the association), and they still have terms to serve out. Two of them went off this year, so there are two spots open,” she said.

Annual association dues will also be collected that night: $15 for individual or $25 per family. Dues-paying association members are the ones who get to vote on the five fair board members that sit on the board.
