The board of directors for the Alameda County
Agricultural Fair Association is seeking candidates to fill vacancies created by two recent retirements. The board is responsible for policy oversight and general operation of the 276-acre
Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, which is home to more than 300 events each year, with an annual attendance in excess of 3 million patrons. Since the Fair Association is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, no compensation is provided to its board members, who are required to attend monthly meetings. Those interested can download an application at www.alamedacountyfair.com. Applicants should include information on their community involvement, as well as brief detail on how their experience and professional expertise would be of benefit to the Fair Association. Applicants must be at least 18 years old and live in Alameda County. The deadline for submitting an application is Friday, Oct. 11.
