Board Nominations for the 2011 Election
Merl Whitebook, Nominating Committee

These are exciting times for KCBS, and for barbeque. Our favorite food group, culinary technique, and sport have captured the imagination of the public. Barbeque is America’s hot new food, and KCBS is America's BBQ Expert!

Your KCBS Board is participating in strategic planning to guide the organization into the future, and to more adequately meet members’ needs. Working along with our marketing agency we have great opportunities which will require devoted and dedicated board members who desire to devote their time and efforts working hard for the organization. Again this year, our members are asked to nominate members for the four (4) positions available on this year’s ballot to each serve a three (3) year term. An unexpired two year term will be filled by the candidate receiving the 5th highest vote count.

Kansas City Barbeque Society is experiencing rapid growth, as it emerges as the premier authority on outdoor cooking and barbeque. KCBS needs committed individuals, to serve our membership, who have a passion for barbeque, are experienced in outdoor cooking, have event, contest, and judging experience, as well as a strong desire to serve in a demanding volunteer position. Along with these qualifications, a strong candidate for the Kansas City Barbeque Society board may also have experience in Marketing/Public Relations, Finance/Accounting, Technology/Programming, or Legal experience.

Nominations for the KCBS Board of Directors will begin on the 1st day of October, 2010 and will close on the 31st day of October, 2010. All members of KCBS, in good standing are eligible for candidacy. Any member may be nominated by another member or by self nomination. Please provide the name, address, phone number and e-mail address of each nominee being submitted for candidacy.

Each candidate nominated must accept the nomination for their name to appear on the ballot. The candidates will be required by the 10th day of November, 2010 to provide to the KCBS office, a current photograph, a statement of qualifications, a biography and general campaign platform, and their answers to the election questionnaire. This information will be publicized in the Bullsheet, on the KCBS website, and the electronic voting website. The submission may be modified one time following initial publication.

The election voting shall begin January 3, 2011 and conclude on January 13, 2011. The results will be announced at the KCBS Annual Banquet January 15, 2011. The newly elected members shall begin their term at the February KCBS Board meeting. All board members are required to serve on Board Committees and be an active member of the Board by attending monthly board meetings and participating in KCBS events.
