Are you a Douglas County resident with a love for western culture, 4-H, FFA and the annual Douglas County Fair and Rodeo?
Your passion and knowledge of agriculture and western heritage – paired with a background in large-event management, accounting/finance, and/or a strong network of resources helpful to the production of a community event of this size – may position you as the next member of the Douglas County Fair Board.
If you meet these criteria, have a strong work ethic and a flexible schedule to allow for weekday activities, you are encouraged to apply for one of two open seats. Online applications will be accepted through Tuesday, Feb. 22.
The Fair Board, appointed by the Board of County Commissioners, comprises 21 volunteer members who represent a vibrant community tradition that this year celebrates its 104th year. Board members are responsible for overseeing the annual Douglas County Fair and Rodeo, including 4-H support.
Board members are expected to attend a regularly scheduled monthly meeting held at 6:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month and participate in two committees, twice each month.
Committees include marketing, entertainment, guest services, livestock sale, rodeo and show management.
Those who wish to serve on the Fair Board should be available 8-10 hours per week, and extensive hours during the Fair and Rodeo – this year from July 29 – Aug. 7.
