BACKGROUND:
Since 1938 through the present, the San Mateo County Fair and Exposition Association (SMCEC), a non-profit corporation, has planned and put on the annual County Fair and manages the Event Center and its facilities. SMCEC operates and managed the Event Center pursuant to an operating agreement with this Board, the most recent of which was executed August 23, 2018, and is currently in effect through December 31, 2025 ("Agreement")

DISCUSSION:
The Agreement currently provides that the Board of Supervisors appoints the Directors of SMCEC, and that there are nine Directors with at least one Director from the agriculture community. In order to broaden community representation on the Board, it is recommended that agreement be amended to reflect that the number of Directors is increased to eleven, with at least one Director from the agriculture community.

The current Agreement expires on December 31, 2025. The proposed Amendment would add an additional term of five years, with a term ending December 31, 2030.
