October 2, 2012

These are exciting times for KCBS and for barbeque. Our favorite food group, culinary technique and sport have captured the imagination of the public. Barbeque is America’s hot new food, and KCBS is America’s BBQ Expert!

Your KCBS Board is participating in strategic planning to guide the organization into the future, and to more adequately meet members’ needs. Working along with our marketing agency we have great opportunities, which will require devoted and dedicated board members who desire to devote their time and efforts working hard for the organization.

Again this year, our members are asked to nominate members for the four (4) positions available on this year’s ballot to each serve a three (3) year term.

Kansas City Barbeque Society is experiencing rapid growth, as the premier authority on outdoor cooking and barbeque. KCBS needs committed members to serve on its Board of Directors!
