Vote to approve the "meet-up" always helps our efforts and community.
**bookmark this all**
There is no budget in the project bucket for ESAPI hmm....
Perhaps you can find a sponsor example Denim/Aspect/Cigital/WhiteHat or the otherson the show floor or any of the other involved ESAPI or get a chapter to help it (Denver, NYC, San Ant, etc...)
Pass the hat and ask for $20 bucks
Are we having fun yet or have we now become a "dry county" organization.

> For the record, based on the Board's/Chair's mutual understanding, I believe this event should be approved and would normally approve the expenditure. However, as the party is planned to be held in the room that I am sharing with Chris, I feel that I should abstain from this process to prevent the appearance of conflict of interest.

> I had hoped that since we are all here I could charge this directly to the ESAPI budget and not buy It and expense for reimbursement. However, Kate expressed concern given after the meeting last night that this may not even be a reimbursable event. Rather than chasing everyone around, I figured the simplest form of resolution was to do this over e-mail. I would like to get this resolved, one way or the other this morning as early as possible so I can make other arrangements if necessary.
