ABOUT THE COMMITTEES
The Benton County Fair Board has four standing committees; Executive, Facilities, Fair, and Business Development. With the exception of the Executive Committee, all have representatives from the community as well as Fair Board members. The Committees forward recommendations to the Board after addressing the issues of focus. Each year, the Committees file Work Plans that guide their course of action.
