Jennifer Giesike is not only chair of the IAFE Board of Directors but is also the president & CEO of the Washington, Mo., Area Chamber of Commerce and manager of the Washington Town and Country Fair. She has held the position for 23 years, for quite the ride.
She highlights her year as chair, traveling to meet members of the IAFE and learning from others. She applied some of the things she learned this year to her fair. The IAFE is about networking and learning from each other to make our fairs better.
