Sandy Woods, Chief Executive Officer of the Nevada County Fairgrounds, has been elected as President of the Western Fairs Association’s (WFA) Board of Directors. Woods was recently inaugurated at the association’s annual conference in Anaheim. Woods will serve a one year term as President. During the past two years, she has also served as Vice President and Treasurer. Woods will represent the more than 800 Western Fairs Association members and will work on their behalf for legislative advocacy, as well as govern the activities and policies of the association. Nevada County Fair publicist Wendy Oaks says Woods will be very busy with this new appointment but her priority is still the Nevada County Fair.
“I know yesterday she was with the governor speaking on behalf of fair funding and fairgrounds across the western United States, so she’s already started in that role. It’s very busy already. Of course her priority is Nevada County Fairgrounds and she’ll be spending a good amount of time here as well.”
The Western Fairs Association is a non-profit trade association serving the Fair industry throughout the Western United States and Canada. WFA serves fair-related businesses, fair management, fair board directors, festivals, and industry associations. The 2012 Nevada County Fair, “Barnyard Safari,” is August 8 – 12.
