I am certain that every person who runs for the board and serves on the board ran for their own reasons. Hopefully the foremost reason is KCBS and it's mission, in addition to doing their best to keep KCBS BBQ competitions going for all who enjoy them. As far as my personal agenda, I'm a proud pellet pusher. I ran for the board to give back to KCBS, plain and simple. I keep my personal agenda personal.
As far as the office of president being only procedural, when a person is signatory to contracts on behalf of an organization, that bind that organization, that duty goes far beyond normal directorship. Why do you think the president gives up their vote? It's to snip back potential power plays and it's the right thing to do. Most powerful duty of the president is to divvy up committee assignments actually, in my opinion. It's also good that officers are limited to 3 one year terms. I will be glad to reach the end of this one, which is my third year.
