Take the Challenge! IAFE Education Foundation – Jim Tucker Fund

The Jim Tucker Fund was established in 2015 in honor of long-time IAFE CEO and Executive Director Jim Tucker. Jim’s vision for the Fair industry includes continued professional education for IAFE members. The Jim Tucker Fund will assist in bringing world class educators to the convention and meetings.

We challenge you to give to this important endeavor.
