Lynn, clearly you see this as a simple "oops" and less of a failure than I do. That's fine. We're each welcome to our own opinions.

The Board is compensated in other ways. regardless, KCBS is a business now and must be operated as such. the basic task of assembling and distributing the agenda is one that should not be left to the last minute or forgotten. I sit on a few boards and recieve the agenda at least 5 days prior to the meeting so I can review it and be ready for anything that comes up at the meeting. When you are elected to this board it comes with certain expectations and requirements that apparently have not been met.


QUOTE=gmholler;1793015]I'm sorry, my friend, but try as I may I can't understand your point of view. The KCBS BOD is staffed by VOLUNTEERS (and I'm not speaking of the TN football team). I've been a member since 2005, and while it might've happened sometime earlier, like when email was a new "thing", this is also the first time for a meeting to be delayed like this in my memory - but that's just part of the nature of something volunteer. It's not like they're paid to be timely. And in the least, they came up with a plan to try to remedy this - what more would you have them do? At least they're acknowledging that they haven't had enough time to consider the issues on the agenda instead of just blindly voting on them.

Is there something MORE to this that you're seeing?

Default Sometimes....

Like we all know, sometimes, stuff happens. I'd rather the BOD slow down and get it right instead of going fast and screwing it up. Sounds like they were being thoughtful. I don't think we should assume something is wrong. The KCBS BOD has been known to mess up when trying to do things in a hurry. This slight pause is actually good news. Sometimes we are all better off when they do nothing.

If any people should understand that crap happens it should be BBQ cooks. That being said, they should explain the situation to us if for no other reason than transparency.

In the immortal words of Sledneck...

yawn....


meeting postponed one week. So what? Anything going on so pressing that putting it off a week will change the outcome? Id rather they give it a week to get it right than present it to an unprepared board.

BBQ cooks also understand the meaning of a deadline, and the implications of not meeting one.

Just to keep the pot stirred

What if they slow down, but still get it wrong?

I don't know where to start... The board is bound by rules, one of those rules is that the agenda must be delivered to the board members within 48 hours of the meeting. The agenda is a schedule of topics/reports that must be posted to all board members 72 hours before the meeting. In other words, meeting topics (with all backup info), motions & reports must be delivered to the board by 7 pm Sunday night before a meeting or that subject doesn't get discussed at the meeting. For the 9/14 meeting all topics and supporting info was timely presented. An agenda was drafted, approved and posted on the kcbs.us website by our secretary. She forgot to send an e-mail to the board with the agenda. It was the path of least resistance to "continue" the business of the meeting to 9/21 rather than have a "discussion only" (i.e. non-voting) meeting with voting done on 9/21. My biggest concern was that time-sensitive decisions (mainly contest sanctions, January voting motion) would not get done. KCBS did grant preliminary approval to Antioch, CA and Young Harris, GA on 9/15 so these contests could get in the Bullsheet.

Hope this explanation helps. Last night's board meeting was very productive, IMO, and did not suffer for being postponed a week.

Thanks Candy. The Secretary really should try to have it together enough to remember to press send though.

Errors occur and i can understand that. Does it excuse what happened? Honestly, id rather them be right than wrong. Im sure it has happened in the past. But in those days and age of instant knowledge from technology, nothing slips through the cracks.

I think what i am more saddened by are the actions or lack thereof of the rest of the directors to not raise a flag and 'remind' the sending party to 'hit send'. Surely other directors noticed that they hadnt received the agenda prior to the start of the meeting?

Yes accountability is huge. Could you imagine if they had let it slip and continued the meeting? Holy hell would be going on right now.

Doesnt excuse, but sheet happens..

Another reason i would never run for the board and why i fully support El Jefe in 2012!!!!
