Yes the concept of everyone knowing who is serving on which committee is a good one.
The days of "No Report" should be over.
Each committee chair should have a strategic plan that is published along with their members. The monthly reports should speak to the strategic plan at minimum.

Although, I might start trying this at work. "Todd's how's your SW development project coming along? Are we hitting our targets?"

"No report."

"Again?"

Thom, you and I should be on the committee on committees.

There is no doubt that there is a core group of KCBS members who want very badly to be involved. I see no reason to not put any member who wants to be a part of an education initiative, etc. to work! My experience with the people I've met in our organization is that we are an amazingly talented and varied group. And we're all united in our passion for barbeque and KCBS is the recipient. I've offered to help before (years ago) on a committee and was pretty much told things were under control. In other words, thanks but no thanks. My personal philosophy is that many hands make for lighter work. KCBS should utilize all its resources and by far the greatest one it has is the knowledge and talents and passion for all things barbeque of its members (that 21% that voted anyway).

Jeez With "friends" like you
LOL
What do I know?
hummmmm

I know Arlie has a
rather dry sense of humor.

I know it is past the point where another year
of same old thing will work

I also know turning in "no report"
will not cut it anymore.

with Jeff only getting 950 votes I'd say better than 10,000 agree that no report is OK.

Maybe next year it needs to be an issue that candidates put in their Bullsheet answers. After all that's the only true communication to all members.

And just remember some years incumbents can run but the next time they are term limited so Mike, Linda and Paul will not be running in 2013. However they can run again in 2014.

Maybe now's the time to look at who is up for 2011 elections and to see if it's open to change or there are multiple incumbents. I don't know the answer by the way.

Like Thom said over 10,000 did not vote for change so that means they are happy. No vote means we're OK with the way things are going and don't really care who runs it.

Why is it sad. Members voted for the 3 current BOD members and returned them. That means that there were not enough voters that thought they should be replaced. So thsoe now complaining are in a significant minority. Maybe if we care for the future of the KCBS it's time to pull together and support the BOD and see if we can make thigns work.

Saying that just because they did not vote they are "OK with the way things are ..." is an assumption and I don't buy that.

It is sad if they are just voting for him because they have heard of his name rather than what he plans to bring to the board. The only thing I do agree with you on is your last statement.

Abstains are not votes for or against something. You can't paint the picture how you want to. It doesn't work that way, Ford.
