As you may have noticed, our NEBS store online hasn’t been selling all of the goodies NEBS has to offer. That has been fixed with lots of new entries in our online store. Some items are only available in limited quantities or sizes, so get them while you can!

2016 Board of Directors Candidate Questionnaire

Submitted by: Rowe, Graham
On: Nov 16, 2015 @ 7:48 PM

  • First Name: Graham
  • Last Name: Rowe
  • E-mail Address: grahamrowe1213@nullgmail.com
  • How long have you been a NEBS member?: 6 months
  • How do you think you will be able to help NEBS as a director?: BBQ is my favorite pastime. Although I have never competed, I am a certified KCBS barbecue judge and am committed to increasing my BBQ knowledge and improving my skills. I have experience on a number of Boards of Directors including as president for a condo association and a firefighters relief association. I also have experience teaching as I have been a CPR instructor for 14 years and with overseeing and managing large groups in events such as the Boston Marathon finish line medical sweep team as the operations section chief. I enjoy spending time with other people who appreciate BBQ as much as I do and hope to be able to help coordinate and assist with NEBS events.
  • Will you be able to attend the BOD meetings on a regular basis, actively participate in online discussions, and complete BOD assignments?: Yes
  • What has been your previous role in NEBS or barbecue in general?: I have been an avid backyard BBQ-er with the drive to become a competitor. I am also an enthusiastic BBQ taste-tester and a certified BBQ judge. Additionally, I enjoy traveling to try BBQ whenever I can.
  • Is there anything else you would like to share?: Although I am new to NEBS, I feel that this organization and I share the same philosophy regarding BBQ. Meeting current members of the board at a recent class motivated me to get involved and share my passion with others.

    When I BBQ, I don’t look at it as work. I look at it as a time that people get together, relax, and have a great time.

  • E-mail Address: kas0032@nullgmail.com
  • How long have you been a NEBS member?: since 2011
  • How do you think you will be able to help NEBS as a director?: I hope that I have proven myself over the last two years with being on the Board and that the membership will give me another opportunity to continue for this next term. My experience with other organizations and the experience with NEBS over the last two years will only help me to continue to grow NEBS with this next term. For those that know me, I can be pretty motivated to get stuff done and make improvements. Another term would give me the opportunity to continue the progress.
  • Will you be able to attend the BOD meetings on a regular basis, actively participate in online discussions, and complete BOD assignments?: Yes
  • What has been your previous role in NEBS or barbecue in general?: Have served on multiple committees and as a Board of Directors for the last two years for NEBS.
  • Is there anything else you would like to share?: We are progressing well and have a great team that is wanting to bring more and more to NEBS. Being a volunteer position and everyone being as busy as they are, things take time – I’d love the opportunity to have another term to help things move along more.

  • First Name: Sharon
  • Last Name: Mayer
  • E-mail Address: sharonmayer0228@nullyahoo.com
  • How long have you been a NEBS member?: 4years
  • How do you think you will be able to help NEBS as a director?: As a mother of 4, with the experience of past management positions , I believe I will bring a fresh set of eyes and the ability to prioritize the needs of NEBS members. I love this organization & hope to infuse the public with the same excitement and love of BBQ that my husband & I have. I have a love for life, friends & bbq that I believe will only enhance the existing NEBS Board. I hope to bring some fresh ideas, abilities & commitment to the 2016 NEBS Board. Thank you in advance for your kind consideration. Sharon Mayer
  • Will you be able to attend the BOD meetings on a regular basis, actively participate in online discussions, and complete BOD assignments?: Yes
  • What has been your previous role in NEBS or barbecue in general?: We have been competing since the end of 2011 in both KCBS & NEBS contests.
  • Is there anything else you would like to share?: My husband Michael & I started in 2011 at the Brookline NH Tailgate & after a 2nd Place call in chicken wings, we were encouraged to sign up for the Harvard Fall Festival, where we had the great pleasure of meeting Ken & Kathy DaKai, who welcomed us to the KCBS world & encouraged us all weekend with our 2 pathetic smokers….We were COMPLETELY out of out league and finished dead ass last….After having the time of our lives & meeting so many amazing & friendly people, we were crushed. Then, Ken Dakai came back to our site, while we were packing…He said “Did you have FUN?” Unanimously we said “YES”, that’s why it’s so heartbreaking that we did so badly….Ken Dakai smiled….and said “Yes, that’s why we do it….It’s FUN! The day it becomes work, and you no longer have FUN, is the day you stop competing” Mike & I have been having FUN ever since. We’ve made some great forever friends, and had some of the best times of our life with our bbq family. I wouldn’t change a single thing & hope to infect the public & help grow the NEBS family with the same love that my husband & I have.
