Strategic Planning

In keeping with our mission and core values, the Los Angeles County Fair Association (LACFA) has begun a year-long process to develop a strategic plan. The strategic planning process includes a series of meetings that bring together key constituents of LACFA to create a community partnership agreement that builds off of our Vision 2025 and will help guide the future of Fairplex.  The steering committee is comprised of representatives from the offices of the County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors and CEO; our State Senator and Assemblyman; the city of Pomona mayor, council and city manager; and members of our Board and Association.  The committee is led by LACFA President and CEO Miguel Santana.

Founded in 1922 with a mission centered on the region’s agriculture and commerce, Fairplex is richly engrained in the history of Southern California. As we approach the 100-year anniversary of the LA County Fair, we intend to develop a strategic plan that will carry us forward in this century in a way that will bring our community together and best serve the needs and interests of this region.  Our desire is to honor and respect the mission, purpose and history of Fairplex while collaborating with key stakeholders to ensure our facilities, program and future strategic initiatives build community and strengthen our economy.
