MOTION - Tana Shupe: I move that the Conflict of Interest Statements for each board member that were made available at the February Strategic Planning Meeting be accepted.
MOTION - Steve Farrin: I move that any and all BOD members that desire access to the accuconference recordings of past meetings be given access
Arlie Bragg: Discussion regarding reps asking for contests when other reps were assigned.
Discussion of any issues or motions tabled from meeting of March 21, 2012. A list of motions follows; however if list is incomplete, motions submitted but not listed should be considered.
MOTION - Steve Farrin: All committee reports be made available to the membership on the website.
MOTION - Dave Compton: That a detailed synopsis of the executive session be read into the minutes of the open meeting, excluding legal and disciplinary issues, and proprietary information - tabled pending input from legal counsel.
The following two motions were tabled:
MOTION: Candy Weaver - I move that the Accuconference recording of closed session meetings be discontinued and all past recordings of all KCBS meetings be discarded.
MOTION: Candy Weaver - Further, I moved that all future AccuConference recording of board meetings made be eliminated after the completion and posting of the MP3 recording of the meeting on kcbs.us.
MOTION - Mark Simmons: Motion to approve one rep and submitted reps in training.
MEMBER SURVEY: For consideration at 4/11 meeting, let's put together a member survey for end of May. KCBS already purchased 3 election/surveys with the January election package. Last board voted to delegate election responsibilities to the office. With that change in election management, we can collect more data on our voters. The main focus is WHERE and WHO our voters are. I believe that knowing this will be of great assistance in the regional representation efforts.
Motion - Candy Weaver: I move that we assemble and coordinate an official KCBS Member Survey to take place in April or May 2012.
Just for thought and discussion, I propose the following topics/questions:
I am a ___ Judge ___ Master Judge ___ Member of a Cook Team ___ Head Cook ___ Contest Organizer ___ Contest Rep
(check all applicable)
If you are a Judge or Master Judge, what is your opinion on Comment Cards
___ I complete a comment card anytime I give a score below 6
___ I never complete a comment card
If you are a member of a cook team or a head cook, do you find:
____ Comment cards are very helpful
____ Comment cards do not provide good information
____ Comment cards just make me angry at judges
If you are a Contest Rep, your opinion of Comment Cards is:
____ I toss most of them because they are irrelevant
____ it's important to give teams the judge's feedback no matter what is said on the Comment Card
____ I believe that sorting and attaching Comment Cards is tedious and time-consuming
This list could go on as we wish. All contributions welcome!
Candy Weaver: I move that we implement a 5-contest only ToY contest for 2012.
Sent to the members of the Board for consideration is a proposal to implement a "lower level" ToY contest. This idea and proposal originated from Dawn, the KCBS administrator for ToY. The issue was tabled until March meeting.
The rep committee requests that the tabled motion in executive session from the March meeting be brought before the BOD concerning the appointment of a RIT who has completed their training and the additional RIT's to be approved to begin their training.
The finance committee moves that an amount be authorized for the repair, resurface and/or resealing of the parking lot at the KCBS office.
Motion by George Mullins to discuss sanctioning issues, which may require action.
