This is accomplished through an annual convention, newsletters, correspondence, sharing of reference library materials and other support services as deemed appropriate.  Membership eligibility is extended to any agricultural related fair, show or exhibition in Maryland with associate membership open to any fair-related support business/industry/organization.

The Charles County Fair Board wishes to thank the Maryland Agricultural Fair Board for their grant of funds, which are used for the payment of expenditures for approved agricultural-related premiums, ribbons and trophies.  We are most appreciative of this generous support.  Without this support, we would not be able to reward our exhibitors at the level proposed in our catalog.
