MS. CAROL CARLSON

A longtime volunteer of the Armada Fair, Ms. Carol Carlson, was inducted into the Michigan Association of Fairs & Exhibitions 2018 Hall of Fame this past January. Carol Carlson served as the Audit Manager for the MDA for 25 plus years prior to her retirement. Carol felt it was important to establish a customer friendly attitude toward fairs and their processes. Under her leadership, her team helped fairs to improve their accounting processes and understand the requirements of state standards. She has volunteered at multiple fairs in her retirement and organized the Ingham County Fair Foundation and serves as the founding executive director. We greatly appreciate her continued support of the Armada Fair.
