On Monday, April 27, 2015, Farm Show Council (FSC) convened for its 44th year. Farm Show Council, originally founded in 1972, was built around the idea that farm shows could be improved for both exhibitors and attendees through communication, education and yearly evaluation. This year’s Farm Show Council meeting was held for its traditional three-day run beginning on April 27 and ending on April 29.
At the meeting, the new 2015-16 Executive Board was installed, including Chip Blalock of Sunbelt Ag Expo, as President, David Zimmerman of Southern Farm Shows as Vice-President, and Matt Jungmann of the Farm Progress Show and Husker Harvest Days as Second Vice-President. Dennis Alford of Power Show Ohio served as the president for the 2014-15 board, and Chuck Gamble of Farm Science Review will continue as Secretary-Treasurer/Coordinator.
Chip Blalock, the 2015-16 President said, “This Council remains as important as ever. We come together to have close discussions, wrestle with agricultural issues, and above all: keep all of our ag shows relevant and continue to set the bar high for both exhibitor and attendee expectations.” Farm Show Council facilitates candid discussions, counter-evaluations, and periodic peer-audits.
The next Farm Show Council meeting will be hosted by World Ag Expo in Tulare, California, from April 25-27, 2016.
The Farm Show Council has been an Associate member of EMDA since 1990.
