We Want You - Board Members Needed
Board of Directors – Call for Applicants

The Minnesota Barbeque Society is in the process of filling its Board of Directors. There will be two open positions on the Board that need to be filled at the January Annual meeting. If you are interested in applying for one of these positions, please submit a short biography about yourself and what you would like to do to make our Society a success. These Board positions are open to all members “in good standing” and are voted on by members of Society. The new Directors would be required to attend monthly board meetings and assist in other areas while the Society continues to grow.

Please submit your biography to Janelle Willard (willard@epi.umn.edu) by December 15th. Biography information will be posted on the Minnesota Barbeque Society website (http://mnbbqsociety.com/) for all members to read. Ballots for voting will be printed and distributed to the membership for vote at the beginning of January. We will be announcing the Board of Directors at the Annual meeting on January 21, 2017.
