LANCASTER – The Antelope Valley Fair Authority is seeking applicants for director positions now available for the Antelope Valley Fair Association’s Board of Directors. The nine-member volunteer board will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the fair and for the planning and production of the annual Antelope Valley Fair and Alfalfa Festival.
“The nine-member A.V. Fair Association Board of Directors is a very important component to the operations of the fairgrounds, and the amount of time that these individuals volunteer to manage the operations is key to the success of the fair,” said Johnny Zamrzla, the chairman of the Joint Powers Authority (JPA) responsible for the oversight of the fairgrounds.
Applications are available online at www.avfair.com. Applications must be completely filled out and dropped off at the administration office at 2551 West Ave H., Suite 102, in Lancaster, in a sealed envelope.
The administration office will be closed Dec. 19 through Jan. 2, and will re-open at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, January 3. Applications must be received by Jan. 13 to be considered for the next appointment.
Originally incorporated as the Antelope Valley Fair in 1938, the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds reorganized, three years later, as the State of California 50th District Agricultural Association that operated under the California State Division of Fairs and Expositions.
As of Nov. 1, 2011, the 50th Agricultural District Fair entered into a “Joint Powers Authority” (JPA) with the City of Lancaster. Members of the JPA Board of Directors are Johnny Zamrzla, Rob Parris, Marvin Crist, Deana Ward and Cecil Swetland.
