Default KCBS Board of Directors nominations begins

Kansas City Barbeque Society Solicits
Board Nominations for the 2010 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.

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, 2009 and will close on the 31st day of October, 2009. 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, 2009 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 2, 2010 and conclude on January 15, 2010. The results will be announced at the KCBS Annual Banquet January 16, 2010. 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. Each Board Member is expected to promote the mission and the ideals of KCBS.

Nominations should be mailed to KCBS at 11514 Hickman Mills Drive, Kansas City, Mo or by email to: carolyn@kcbs.us and mwhitebook@kcbs.us.

Hopefully people who care about the KCBS and Competition cooking and the promotion of BBQ as a sport and as a way of life for the average person.

Somebody that is willing to work as part of a team and is capable of understanding that their position may not always be what others agree to and they need to get behind the majority decision and move forward. Kind of like the Supreme Court. There's a dissenting opinion but then it's over as the decision has been made. They don't continue to stir up trouble about the decision after it's made.

And I guess having a thick skin also helps. It's truly a thankless job.

It was mentioned that "Technology/Programming" experience would serve to strengthen a candidates qualifications. I was wondering if some one could explain to me what duties of a board member would be added by this experience.

DMP,
A very good question.
KCBS is a large company, which sanctions nearly 300 contest, has over 10k membership and a large budget. The Board does not only deal with issues over competition, but sets the philosophy for the the company. The Board is asked to approve contractual relationships with vendors and organizers. The Board has to be in compliance with the new 990 requirements.
Two months ago, we approved a contract to change the office to a server based computer system. We relied upon those with knowledge to advise if this was a good proposal. (fortunately it was) Our web site is much improved but has room for more. Our e-mail system and conference call capabilities. Our scoring program is old and is being worked upon. The technology opportunities for our organization are still in its infancy. How about live feeds from awards ceremonies? (just dreaming right now)

The responsibilities of a member of the Board is much more than cooking and judging. Those will always be a priority, but this is a business which needs expertise to grow and prosper. Don't forget each board member can have personal liability for improper conduct of the business. There will always be a need for those with various skill set to help our organization in the future.

Of course this is only my opinion.

Does being elected mandate a move to the KC area?

But some meetings must be attended in person. It's difficult to do them by phone on a regular basis and you don't get the body language and other side discussions over the phone. Many of the BOD travel to KC for the monthly meetings.
