KCBS Membership New Fee Structure Effective September 1st

Thank you for being a valued member of KCBS.   Your membership and participation allows us to continue the mission of KCBS to celebrate, teach, preserve and promote barbeque as a culinary technique and sport.  Because of your generous support we have been able to develop new programming for cooks and judges, provide youth scholarships, create additional training and continuous education programs and so much more.    
Over the last six years, we have been very fortunate to maintain our membership rates.  Due to the many increases we are all experiencing, the Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to increase membership rates effective September 1st.   We wanted to provide you as much advance notice to this price increase, as there is still time to lock in current pricing or take advantage of a lifetime membership. 
Membership rates, starting September 1st will be:
• Individual membership: $45 per year 
• Family membership for a two-person household: $60 per year
Lifetime membership will remain the same rate of $400 for individual and $500 for family membership. 
If you currently have an autopay set up, then no action is needed as the price adjustment will take place at the time of your renewal.  If you would like to lock in the current rate, you may renew now or take advantage of a lifetime membership.  Please contact the KCBS office at membership@kcbs.us or via phone at 816-765-5891 for assistance with your membership questions.
We want to thank you for understanding and support of the Kansas City Barbeque Society. We will continue to strive to exceed your expectation by providing you with exceptional customer service and member benefits.
