The Washington State Fair Industry, Individual Fairs and the WSFA is comprised of dedicated staff and loyal volunteers.The International Association of Fairs & Expositions provides resources and support through the Institute of Fair Management.
The mission of The Institute of Fair Management is to enhance the professional development of the employees and volunteers of our member fairs and expositions by providing education and training in areas of core competency necessary for the operations of today's fairs, large or small.
The core competency areas in which the courses of the Institute will be focused include management, risk management, marketing, programming, operations, and facility usage.
