The 26-member board oversees the operations of the Alameda County Fairgrounds, which attracts over 3 million visitors each year.
"The Alameda County Fair Board of Directors welcomes the knowledge and expertise that Chuck Moore of Castro Valley brings to the board," Janet Lockhart, the board's president, said. "The agriculture, community service commitment, and enthusiasm he offers will be an asset to the Fair and community."
Moore's community involvement includes work with the Fair, the U.S. Equestrian Federation, Eden Area Livability Initiative blue ribbon steering committee and the National Hot Rod Association.
"Alameda County has a rich agricultural heritage, and my wife Peggy and I have always been actively involved in agriculture," Moore said on his appointment. "My goal is to promote agriculture in our community."
The Alameda County Fair, which will be held from June 18 through July 6 this year, is ranked as one of the top 50 fairs in the U.S. and has won numerous awards both nationally and internationally.
The Fairgrounds also hosts more than 300 events annually.
