On behalf of the Indiana Association of Fairs Board of Directors we hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and is staying safe in the world that we are currently living. We all know that the pandemic has had a major effect on all of us the past nine months.
With the continued increase in illnesses and restrictions for meeting and events the 2021 Indiana Association of Fairs Convention has been cancelled. The INAF Board is disappointed that we cannot get together for the face to face meeting but the risk and concerns out weigh the meeting.
The INAF will be having a virtual annual meeting in January. The date and time for the meeting will be established in the next two weeks and will be conveyed to the membership! At the annual meeting a Vice President will be elected and each district will elect a District Director for the North area.
We hope that the members will be able to make the membership dues payments for 2021. This will allow the organization to continue to provide meetings and information to all of the members. Attached is the 2021 Membership form or the payment can be made on-line at: https://www.indianafairsandfestivals.org/p/member-services/renew-your-inaf-membership/fairs--festivals-membership-renewal
With the change in the convention plans recognizing Hall of Fame members is critical. We hope that each organization will nominate someone from their organization. The material can be accessed on-line athttps://www.indianafairsandfestivals.org/p/other/2019-hall-of-fame-nominations. Deadline will be January 1, 2021 for the nominations.
The INAF will be hosting virtual meetings starting in January to discuss plans for operating the events in 2021. Events will not be the same as they were in previous years but we need to work together to have events for the communities. Stay tuned for the information as it is developed.
Please continue to look for information that will be coming to the members and hopefully we receive the membership dues in the near future!
