I see at the top of each monthly BOD meeting somebody offers financial report, somebody 2nd's it, and boom it's passed. Does KCBS have this information available to all of its members to parous ?
You can take a look at the 990s. You will not get a break down of what each employee in the office is paid.

Well that was interesting KCBS is in the red under 2016's charge?
Executive compensation was $100K and other salaries and wages were a cool 1/4 Million?
Does anybody know what a Executive Director or CEO might be paid monthly from the dues collected mostly (I would imagine) by CBJ's?
Any reason why the financial report voted on every month is not available to its members?

From the "Official KCBS certified judges" FB page;

Must be a KCBS Member in good standing to join group. Membership status is verified with the KCBS Office. Constructive comments are welcomed. Excessive criticism will get you removed from the group. Comments NOT related directly to judging within KCBS may be removed. This is not a forum to vent or bash any faction of KCBS membership, staff, associates, etc.

And yes I joined, and I'm still there...for now.

Would be Excellent if the group was renamed the KCBS Active certified judges FB page. Must be a currently active cbj to join and to remain a member.

I do believe it would foster more constructive conversations between active CBJs...

I believe if you are current paid member of KCBS and are a CBJ then you ARE an ACTIVE certified bbq judge.

Just seems as though there are too many Active cooks that at one time took the class but have not been actively judging since ...

The fact they don't have a major sponsor for TOY is evidence of how poorly managed KCBS has been. The fact that Sams leaving meant they don't have money for any of the big items that can potentially bring publicity and attention to KCBS (Sams series, TOY - including helping them get on major TV shows and show what BBQ Is about, etc). Hoping the new board fixes some of these issues. I believe having a few professionals whose job it is to do these things will certainly help.

A couple of years ago we had an idea to couple a BBQ contest with a fishing tournament. The cooks and fishermen drew for partnership. The cooks cooked the normal 4 meats and the fishing crew did their normal thing. At 2pm the fishing crews were back and they had to provide 1 fish for their BBQ team. The team had 45 minutes to butcher, cook and turn in the fish which was then judged. Fishing tournaments are big bucks and have big sponsors, the fishing people were interested. KCBS wouldn't even answer the emails. The idea died.
