Associate memberships represent an important part of our organization and we are your direct connection to over 100 of West Virginia's best fairs and festivals! Please see below to learn more about an associate membership.

Today’s organizations are driven by the way they collect and utilize data. And the truly successful organizations combine this data with web and social media to enhance their communications with customers, vendors and the public.

As stated in our by-laws, we are to be a vehicle through which general information relative to fairs and festivals may be communicated for the best interest of its members, the fair and festival-going public.

In our ongoing efforts to improve communications and promote your Event and/or Pageant - or in the case of Associate members, your services - we have to make a move from the “paper form and Excel spreadsheet” world.

We are collaborating with MemberPlanet to help facilitate these changes. MemberPlanet currently works with schools, churches, PTA groups, educational foundations, fraternal, social, Greek and alumni groups around the world and has created all of the online tools needed for communications, payments, donations, registration forms, the ability to share event photos and much more.

Use this link to get information about the current process of becoming an Associate Member.

Online registration of your Event, Pageant or service is only the beginning. Online invitations to current members with up to date email contact information have already been sent out.


If you must have a paper form to register you can request one here, using "Form Request" in the title of the email. Be sure to include your name and complete mailing address in the message. You will still need to fill out the same required fields to complete your membership.
