Jeremy Parsons

The WSFA is pleased to host Jeremy Parsons as our Keynote Speaker Friday, October 20th at our annual Convention. Jeremy is Sponsored by IAFE

"despite the varied titles, hats, duties and responsibilities,

we all have the same job at our respective

fairs – we are the caretakers".

Parsons provides the tools to “Take Care” of your fair, specifically how to do simple strategic planning, track your economic impact, promote your local relevance, and turn your Board into positive advocates.

Jeremy Parson, CFE has served as CEO/Manager of the Clay County Fair in Spencer, Iowa, since November 2011. Parsons also served as executive director of the Missouri State Fair Foundation, and prior to that, spent 11 years as a high school English Teacher and basketball/track coach so his summers could be free to work at the Iowa State Fair and later the Missouri State Fair. Originally from Leon, Iowa, his three main priorities beside the fair sector are his faith, his family and the Chicago Cubs. He and his wife, Keisi have three sons (Creighton, Silas, and Milo) and are active members of the Spencer First Baptist Church. Jeremy will take this subject a step further in a session following at 10:30 AM titled . . .
Take Care Continued.
