I'm not a Rep or an organizer, I don't write books or hold classes, I don't cater or vend and I am not a permanent member of a cooking team, although I do cook once or twice a year with different teams. I have absolutely no way that I can make money from my involvement with KCBS or from BBQ in general.
To me, there should be NO WAY for a Board member, directly or indirectly, to profit from being on the BoD. This should include Reps getting "plum" assignments, sales of books or anything else that can't pass the smell test.
By the way Meatlover, could you pop on over to Cattle Call & introduce yourself? Maybe let us know something about you other than "goverment owned & operated" or "Anytown, Anystate"
