Don,

I'd like to see a motion and vote on making committee members public. I'd also like a motion and vote on using the KCBS website to announce committee openings and allow members to communicate their interest to the committee chair for consideration.

Thanks for your service.

Todd

I second Todd's comment on committee members and open positions.

I'd also like to see formal strategic objectives with defined measures added and addressed. These should also ultimately link to the committee goals and structure, with formal requirement on how the committee is addressing these goals. No more "No Report" for multiple months on end.

Almost forgot

Term Limits - Allowed to serve X number of terms (3 or 4 maybe) then a mandatory cooling off period of Y years (or 1 term). For those that continue to want to serve in a capacity within the organization, they can continue to serve and have roles on respective committees.

+1


I'd also like to see a financial statement showing expenditures for the annual meeting in Philadelphia vs income from attendees. There's no way that sad excuse for a buffet should have cost $14,000+. I'd like to know what else my $53 (and everyone else's) subsidized.

Even if the banquet attendees alone footed the bill for the 3 meeting rooms and the banquet hall rental (which they shouldn't have) the cost vs services provided seemed way out of line.

Since the hotel was unable to fulfill it's contractual obligation (they ran out of food during service) are banquet attendees going to get partial refunds?

Are you asking to expand the current term limits. I cannot agree with that. I think are current term limits are good, and just cannot go along with an expansion of the number of terms a board member can serve without a break.

There are specific term limits. Only 2 terms permitted 3 years each, and only three years on the executive committee position. You must sit out 1 year after you have reached the limits.

Todd,
The chairs are all listed on the KCBS website with their email addresses. The duties may change in Feburary but at least on my part I would be happy to have volunteers interested in being on my committee.

Thanks for the clarification - I would say if its a 1 year cooling period (2 terms, off a year, another 2 terms) I'd move to extend the cooling period.

Linda,

Look at my post again. That isn't what I asked for. I asked for committee members specifically, not chairs. You are correct that we know who the chairs are.

Something more formal than "you can email me" would be nice. For instance, if the Technology committee was looking for certain skills to support an initiative, I'm sure members who have those skills would like to know so that they can choose to step up.

Todd

Todd, I LOVE your idea! I see no reason why this could not be done! I know it would get more members interested and involved! Afterall, it's up to all of us to help make KCBS a better organization, not just the Board. They can't do it without us!

Hmmm... maybe I should run for the board.

I would like to serve on a committee
Yes the concept of everyone knowing who is serving on which committee is a good one.
The days of "No Report" should be over.
