How does the KCBS verify CBJ's
At a contest, how does the organizer or Rep determine if a person is a CBJ in good standing or just somebody that took the course and stopped paying dues? If the KCBS is going to post info on CBJ's at a contest they need some process to ensure people are current. Who is actually responsible for doing the verification and does the KCBS supply undated info to each contest?
I did find out from Ed Roith that there are over 6000 CBJ's in good standing and as 8800 members were elgiible to vote at least 2/3 of members are CBJ's. Of course I'm a CBJ and I haven't judged since 2000.
I'd also be interested to know how many people have been trained as CBJ's. Anybody out there took a class recently want to post their CBJ #? I figure this is a big part of member retention and if we're looking at getting new members we need to understand how good a job we do retaining existing members.
