Dave is NBBQA President Elect

Hello One and All,

Life is happening, things are changing, a lot is going on and I wanted to share some of that with all y’all. Over the past 18 months I have been slowly stepping away from my responsibilities with Sweet Baby Ray’s. As our business at Sweet Baby Ray’s grows I have great confidence in our team, our leaders and our plans for the future of our business. My attention now shifts to making time to work on my health, my growing interests in supporting community efforts and folks in the inner City of Chicago, closer to where I grew up.  I have been fortunate enough to be able to make these efforts one of my priorities and in doing so see many many others giving their time and efforts as well. It is humbling and rewarding but much more to the point important and necessary.

I am also happy to announce that I am now the President Elect of the National Barbecue Association (NBBQA).  This was a great honor for me and I took much time to make my decision.  Linda Orrison is President for the next two years; Mike Mills, Denny Mike, and Chris Jones are all board members who are among my best friends in barbecue and life. Other board members include Past President Kell Phellps, Harry Soo, Becky Streuter from 17th Street, Patrick Murtry from Company 7, Bonnie Gomez, Malcolm Reed of Killer Hogs fame and Mark Lambert.  This is a six-year commitment on my part and we have great hopes, expectations and plans for NBBQA as we go forward.

- Dave
