“Looking At Fairs, Inside and Out—Finding


and Using The Positives” Presented by Bob Williams


Through the IAFE Speaker’s Bureau, we are pleased to


announce that Bob Williams will be presenting a special workshop at this year’s Convention. Bob Williams is a con- sultant for the Wisconsin State Department of Agriculture and visits over 35 county Fairs each year. Bob’s program titled “Looking at Fairs, Inside and Out—Finding and Using the Positives” will address everything from: how to gain the support of your surrounding communities; how to really welcome new board members and superintendents; devel- oping signage, inside and out, how to get your grounds landscaped at minimal cost; and developing attractive ex- hibits.


Animal Rights vs Animal Welfare Presented by Heidi Herriott


Through the IAFE Speaker’s Program, we will be fortu-


nate to have two guest speakers at this year’s Convention. Heidi Herriott will present a workshop on Animal Rights vs


Animal Welfare. Businesses related to animals, including agriculture, are under attack by animal rights proponents. Their agenda is clear—to put animal related businesses out of business! If this has not already affected your Fair, it likely will. Your job of educating your patron about agricul- ture has become even more important. This session will provide timely and useful information to assist your Fair in dealing with this issue and understanding the climate in which we operate. You will learn to make the distinction between the Animal Right Community and Animal Welfare advocates. You will also be provided with tools and re- sources that will allow you to take a proactive approach when possible, and how to respond if you are already in a negative position. This sessions is important not only for your Fair’s Ag coordinator, but also board members, spokespeople, and Fair management. It is vital that every- one related to your Fair be on the same page.
