Quick Notes from the Board Room
September 10, 2008

Jennifer Palmer introduced Karen Walker , who will be the volunteer and contest coordinator and Kelly Cain who is in charge of special projects. The Board is very pleased to welcome them into the KCBS family.

The Board approved the sanctioning agreements for 2009 contest. The Board removed the logo requirement which required organizers to use the official KCBS logo on all contest materials, including but not limited to: promotional items, advertisements, banners, signage, t-shirts and all other contest materials produced after sanctioning has been approved by KCBS.

The Board approved the adoption of a 401k plan thru Axcet with no contributions from KCBS, for employees of KCBS.

The Board discussed that the election nominations will begin on October 1, 2008 and end on October 31, 2008. Nominations (self nominations are acceptable.) must include the candidate’s name, address, phone number and e-mail address. Please send nominations to mwhitebook@kcbs.us and to jpalmer@kcbs.us. The list of candidates which accept nomination will be posted on November 1, 2008, on the KCBS web site.

The Board modified the use of Contestant Critiques which currently required every team to be provided a critique. Remember, any team which desires to complete a critique may download a critique from the web and return to KCBS by e-mail, fax or postal mail.

MMA, Marketing committee and Technology committee continue to work on the TOY standings and posting of standings on the KCBS website.

The Peters have only 6 contests remaining on the Tour. The Board appreciates the services provided by the Peters and the Polands in conducting the 2008 Tour.

The Board requested Carolyn Wells, to negotiate an agreement with the Jack Daniels World Invitational BBQ Contest in order to solidify our position with the contest.

* These are not the official minutes of the meeting. Quick Notes are simply provided as an effort to give members a quick summary of the KCBS Board of Directors meeting.

Merl Whitebook, Secretary.

What about a Financial Report? If we have so much money then why did you guys need to take about adjustments?

Merl, is this immediately effective? Were asked to make an effort towards a "Greener Event"...elimination of un required print materials can be part of that. Let me know
