President’s Message

I am deeply honored to have been selected as our new MABA President for 2021. I will always strive to be worthy of the trust you have placed in me to lead this organization.

I am relatively new to MABA compared to some, but I have come to value my membership in this organization and the friendships I have forged through MABA and the competition barbecue world.

My goals as President are to foster the social aspect of MABA and increase the size of “our tent” to welcome more members into the MABA family. We have lots of exciting news to share in the coming weeks, and we look forward to a return to normalcy in 2021 so that we can all return to the competition world and all the fun that goes with it. I am thrilled with the new Board members you have selected, and we are already collaborating on new ideas to improve our member experience.

Please feel free to contact me at with any questions or concerns. I welcome all feedback from our membership. Be well and happy new year to all!

MABA President, Lisa Dommes
