KCBS Needs You!

Nominations for the 2016 Board of Directors Election

As the Kansas City Barbeque Society heads into its 30th year, we are looking for devoted and dedicated members to help guide this organization. As the organization grows, so do the needs for members with certain skill sets willing to devote their time and efforts to advance KCBS as the authority on outdoor cooking and barbeque.
This is not a position to just “put in your time” or to add to your resume. This is a commitment to work together with your fellow board members to make a difference. If you have a passion for barbeque, experience in outdoor cooking, event organizing, contest and or judging experience, strong computer or IT skills, accounting/financial background along with a strong desire to serve in a demanding volunteer position, please consider running for election to the KCBS board.
