For ALL KCBS Members
 
Please get informed and VOTE in the up-coming election! The future of KCBS is in the hands of the members who VOTE. Please don't not vote, then sit on the sidelines and complain. If you VOTE for the candidates whose platforms agree with your positions, you'll have a voice on the board of KCBS. Then complain, I guarantee the board does listen! But, please VOTE!!!

Thanks for the reminder. I was amazed at the low percentage of members who voted last year.

Plowboy 11-03-2011 02:43 PM

Some really good candidates on that list. Everyone needs to pay close attention. Should be very interesting.

Can I have 8 or 9 votes?

smoke-n-my-i's 01-04-2012 07:29 PM

Since when and why does KCBS allow candidates to access personal information of members and send out an email "begging" for votes? Here is one I got Monday..... (BTW, when I got one last year and questioned it, I was told that it would not be allowed again).

I am running for the KCBS Board for another term and would appreciate your support

BTW, after I received the email, I forwarded it to KCBS as well as a copy to Gene.... I have not heard a word from anyone.....

MilitantSquatter 01-04-2012 07:34 PM

This answer was posted by Gene on another forum that had a running discussion about the same topic

"I can settle this for everyone, this is not from any list of e-mails from KCBS that I do not have access to anyway.... this is a list of old and new e-mail lists of mine and many friends and organizers around the Country that are helping me..... I used to be the largest organizer, a friend of mine is now, between these lists, i sent out approx. 2600 e-mails yesterday, about 600 bounced back as old non existent, none are from KCBS or its database."

smoke-n-my-i's 01-04-2012 07:44 PM

Thanks. If you or anyone else hasn't figured it out, I AM a very aggressive anti-spammer, and since I did not ask for any information from Gene, that is just exactly what that is classified as....

Thanks again for the answer. Now, how does one get their email removed from that list?????

boogiesnap 01-04-2012 07:49 PM

still a bit discomforting.

i don't think a spammish tactic like that will get anyone very far.

i'm also not so happy to hear organizers sharing others personal contact info. i don't care if they were the biggest or smallest.

boogiesnap 01-04-2012 07:52 PM

moreover, i think i'd ask for a list of those "organizers helping" to be sure i don't ever give them personal info again.

I bet you can't guess who I did NOT vote for???? LOL

smoke-n-my-i's 01-04-2012 08:03 PM

that should be part of the contract for an organizer that they will NOT sell, give, or trade any personal information of cook teams, judges, reps or any other person that is associated with the event.....

Leatherheadiowa 01-04-2012 08:06 PM

Boogie,
I couldn't agree with you more. While nothing illegal happened, something unethical did happen. I wondered how my name got into someone else's hands and now I know. Do we have to ask that a privacy clause be put in every registration now to keep people from sharing for unethical practices? Add a check box that allows people to share our information? I WOULD HOPE NOT! Something about one bad apple...
I guess desperate times call for desperate measures!
