Meet the New Executive Director


Much has occurred since WFA's 30-year Executive Director Stephen Chambers announced his retirement at the closing of our 2017 convention in Reno. Your WFA Board of Directors developed a Search Committee headed by Treasurer Judy Carrico (Fair Operations Manager, Alameda County Fairgrounds) and hired Ralph Andersen & Associates to assist in the recruitment process. Now, weeks away from our 2018 convention in Anaheim, we are pleased to announce that the WFA Board of Directors has completed their search and selected the next Executive Director of the Western Fairs Association.

Sarah Cummings

Sarah is a familiar face to many members of the Western Fairs Association. Coming to WFA from her position as the General Manager of the Colorado State Fair, Sarah has served on both the WFA and California Fairs Alliance Boards, and has been the CEO at both the Salinas Valley Fair and the Sonoma-Marin Fair. A graduate of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, Sarah is excited to be making her return to California.

Sarah is now with the WFA team in Sacramento, and can be contacted at her new email address. Join us at our June 21 Open House at the San Diego County Fair to meet Sarah and learn about our 2019 convention in Reno!
