Board of Directors

The Board of Directors for the Georgia BBQ Championship is responsible for the strategic and financial direction of the organization. Elections are held each year to fill any vacant seats, with incoming Directors assuming their seats at the yearly meeting held at the Annual Banquet. Directors serve for two years. The position of Executive Director is permanent - the ED serves indefinitely until he/she chooses to step down or is voted out by the Board. Currently, there are 12 seats on the GBC Board.

All seats hold equal votes as does the Executive Director, who does not vote unless the rest of the Board is deadlocked in a tie vote on a motion. Each year the Board elects officers to serve as Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Treasurer & Secretary from the current Board.

For inquiries about the GBC, please contact the appropriate board member via their email address below.
