LOL!!! That's exactly one of the things I'll have to consider. 2010 is already a better year than any whole year we've ever had in barbecue and we're really enjoying ourselves this year. Hate to lose out on that.

By the way... where are you cooking on Father's Day and your birthday next year?

The board opening shall remain vacant until the next general election of Board members. The vacancy shall be filled by the candidate receiving the 5th highest vote count. (in the event of multiple vacancies, then the 6th, and so on.) The candidate receiving the 5th (and the like) highest vote count shall serve the remaining term of vacant board seat.
The motion was seconded by Merl Whitebook.

Vote:
10 yes, 1 no, 0 abstentions
The motion to adopt a policy for the replacement of vacant Board seat, passes.
I hate to fight this battle again...As the lone newbie on the board, I was NOT allowed to make or second motions in February. The minutes were rewritten to reflect that Merl made the motion and Don seconded. It is my personal opinion that leaving a seat vacant for this long a period (8 months) may be a mistake. This topic was not addressed at all in this evenings board meeting. Listen to the podcast!

I agree, 8 months is to long! I hope the podcast is better than last month, It made me embarrassed to admit I belonged to the KCBS. With all of the bickering and all. Now I know why some members of the Board did not want the podcast.

I'd like to see the re-written minutes. I know Candy did not make this motion. Although it is beyond me why the Board would try to tell someone who was legitimately elected to the Board by a huge majority that that person could not make or second any motions in February. That in itself is a crock of chit!

I now FULLY understand why the real person making the motion wanted it this way. It's clearly sunken in tonight...

Why? Because they don't want the general membership to know that, unlike all of us who help each other at contests when needed, even though we're competing against each other, they, as the leaders of the very same organization, built on fun and friendship, can't get along with each other?

It seems as if there is no opportunity to fill the vacant seat for 8 months that it leaves the door wide open to a potential BoD of like minded individuals voting block steering the KCBS with out any opposition.

It will be interesting to see what happens.

OK, since no one is saying anything, and it will get out eventually.

It is "my understanding" that;

Linda Mullane was "asked" to resign. (<-- read that however u want, where I come from, that usually means forced out.)


and also, Linda is no longer a rep or CBJ Instructor.

Neither is Jerry Mullane.

We have just lost a board member WE voted in, and here in the Northeast, we have also lost our NE representation, AND also, what I consider 2 of KCBS's best reps.

This action leaves us with 5, maybe 6, local reps to cover not just the NE, but the entire eastern region. I have not heard of any contingencies.



Thank you! Please sir, may I have another.

That is pretty similar to the way I understand it as well, Phil. I'd be interested in hearing the "why" part of all that though.

Since you're dishing, please give us it all.

If Mullane was asked to step down, as you say, who did the asking?

It appears an unfortunate personal situation was used to weaken a perceived voting block on the board.

Chicken chit in my book.

Based on voting records "that person" just lost a key voter and that leaves it basically 5-4 with 1 swing vote and of couse the president as a tie breaker.
