The Carseland & District Community & Agricultural Society is a registered non-profit charitable organization that operates under the governance of the Alberta Association of Agricultural Societies (AAAS).
This organization operates and maintains facilities in Carseland for use of the general public. These facilities include the Carseland Community Hall, the Carseland Recreation Center, Millennium Ball Park as well as Downey Centennial Park.
The funding required to operate these facilities is obtained through rentals of the facilities; Provincial funding through AAAS;
donations from other community groups including the Carseland Jet Setters, Carseland PB Club, the Carseland Lions Club and support from Wheatland County.
Additional funds are obtained through fundraising events; donations from local residents and businesses and application for additional granting as the need arises.
Any individual who is over the age of 18 and a resident of Alberta may become a member of this organization. The cost for membership is $15.00 per family per year.
A volunteer board of directors is elected annually to make decisions regarding the business of the society in accordance with its bylaws. This board is accountable to the Membership holders of the Association and reports to these members at an Annual General Meeting held in the fall.
Our annual “Aggie Days” runs at the end of June in conjunction with the local Lions Club Barbecue and boasts activities for all ages. This event has been getting larger and more exciting every year featuring a parade, ball tournament, trade show, activities for the kids and a dance following dinner on Saturday evening. Hundreds of volunteer hours are required to make this happen and the society is always looking for new ideas and suggestions to improve and expand the festivities.

The Board of Directors consists of individuals who have been nominated by other Community Association Membership holders. Positions on the Board are voluntary and require varying amounts of time. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month with additional meetings if required. Elected Positions are for a term of two years with the option to stand for re-election at the end of that term.
The Purpose of this board is to over-see the day to day operation of the Society including the operation and maintenance of its facilities, programs and events. If you live in the community and feel you have some time to offer to become involved with the decision making regarding it, why not let your name stand for nomination so you can start making a difference? Our regular monthly meetings are open to community members, so feel free to drop in and check us out.
