KCBS Banquet Goes To Nashville in 2009

July 9, 2008
At the July 8th Board of Directors meeting, the KCBS Board made the decision to take the 2009 annual banquet on the road. The Board determined that every other year, the annual banquet would alternate between Kansas City and another geographical area where there is a strong base of membership. As a result, Nashville, Tennessee was the first alternate city selected for the 2009 banquet.

“Nashville is a logical place to take our banquet,” said board member Troy Black. Lots of things were considered, such as accessibility by air for members outside the locale, facilities available, density of membership in the surrounding region, and volunteer support within the alternate area.

“I’m very excited about the banquet coming to the Southeast," Black commented. "We’ll have lots of people attending the banquet for the very first time that could not get to Kansas City in the past. This is a testament to the growth and national presence that our organization has.”

More details about the 2009 banquet will be communicated in The Bullsheet and on this site as they are available. If you want to volunteer to help with the banquet, please contact Jennifer Palmer@jpalmer@kcbs.us
