Default A few reminders!

This is great. A big thank you to Phil.

I do want to begin this thread with a few reminders.
1. Only a few board members read any forum, at all.
2. Even fewer BOD members will respond on a forum.

So what do you do.
Use this area to voice, vent, suggest and cause discussion and consideration of issues and matters of importance.
But
Do not forget, direct mail to the BOD is always a good way to get your point across. Do not just complain, offer a suggestion for improvement.

Remember you may request from KCBS the agenda for any BOD meeting 48 hours in advance of the meeting. BOD meetings are generally on the second Wednesday of each month, but not always. Check with KCBS. February meeting is Feb 8 and we work all day Feb 9 on KCBS matters in a workshop setting.

You may attend a meeting and speak on an issue or issues. You must register with the Secretary of KCBS at least 24 hours prior to the meeting. The request forms are available though KCBS.

With this in mind, I look forward to this section.
One last thing to remember, any member of Board who is willing to post here, can truly only speak on their own behalf, and not on behalf of the BOD or KCBS.

Looking forward to a great discussion, and please be understanding.
Yours in Q, and willing to stand in the fire.

I'd like to add and comment on what my intentions are for this forum.

Not only to be a place FOR THE BOARD. It was not set up with the intention of putting the board members on the spot, or even having them join in all the time.. I would like this to be where members can speak freely, expecting that a board member will see it, yet not always be in a position to comment. I am going to move a bucnh of threads in here that would be appropiate IMO.

Default Thank you Phil

I would also like to thank you Phil, it is nice to knwo that people can come to a location to ask board members questions, this is one of the things that I posted here the other day in my response to KCBS questionaire, I believe that the board works for the members and is responsible to report back to said membership..... I know that there is kind of a gag order on board members now, I would if elected to the board request that we vote this rule out and make the meeting available online to be listened to in addition to our financial status being available to mebers in good standing.

Merl,

So what happens when you do all of the above that you mention, and not a single person at KCBS will respond to any emails, or return a call?

This has happened to me more than once when I call or email asking a question, and offering a suggestion. It is always, I will have someone call you. Than years later, I am still waiting. Or, never even have the common courtesy to acknowledge an email.

Thanks for letting me vent,
Bill
