Default KCBS Good News

There is good new from the Board Room. We just completed a two day Board Retreat. The purpose was to conduct our monthly business but more importantly to set our goals, determine needs and developed plans.

For 2008 the assignments are as follows:
President: Mike Lake
Vice President Rod Gray
Treasurer Wayne Lohman
Secretary Merl Whitebook

Committees
Certified BBQ Judges Ed Roith
Contest Reps Carol Whitebook
Education Paul Kirk
Finance Wayne Lohman
Marketing Troy Black
Membership Steve Ownby
New Ideas and Nominating Merl Whitebook
Research and Development Linda Mullane
Rules Rod Gray
Sanctioning Tana Shupe
Technology Don Harwell

I think we have set a lot of ambitious goals. I think you will see a website with even more information and services. I think you see an effort to bring KCBS to your state. I think you see an atmosphere of customer service.

Now before you fall over laughing, there are 12 good people who are committed to this. Despite our difference, we are committed to our jobs and our position to serve our organization and our members.

If you have skills which would help one of the Board Committees, you might want to contact the Board Member and offer up your service.

Yours in Q
Merl Whitebook

Default well.....

He's BEEN the Marketing Committee....you'd have thought they would have elected someone else in that position and some other positions to mix it up a bit.

Hi All,

R&D is planning some aggressive goals this year.

To start we are going to try and expand the Competitor Series with more events and rules.

We would also like to see the membership streamlined especially those who are registered in a CBJ class. Our goal is a 30 day turn around.

If anyone has anything they would like to see us look into let me know.

Linda, Thanks!!! You and Jerry are great reps here on the east coast and we truly appreciate it. I'm not sure what R&D's role is for the KCBS. Could you enlighten us a little? That might make it easier to offer suggestions.

Agressive goals indeed! I would like to see more competitor series events - the LP Que was a great time last year. And a 30 day turn around would be great! Thanks for the update Linda.
