Four members were chosen to serve on the Red River Valley Fair Association's 50 person board of directors on the basis of what they believe they can bring to the organization, past committee experiences, and how their leadership can drive the association to greater heights:  Tom Monilaws, Absaraka; Michele Thomaier, Carrie Stenseth, and Paul Wraalstad, all Fargo.

Members of the 50 person board of directors have all been elected to serve on the Executive Committee for three-year terms - Renee Atkinson, Mike Eberhardt and Jim Christopher.  They join current executive committee members Jo Anne Anderson, Bill Hoffmann, Susan Hogen, Darnell Lundstrom, David Strand, and Lois Sullivan.

Hoffmann, Eberhardt, and Anderson will serve the board as president, vice-president and secretary-treasurer, respectively.
