I don't think it should be required, but I think we can 'prefer' OWASP
members over non-members (in terms of the selection criteria), and I'd be
open to a different revenue split for non-members.
And I think each region should be able to adjust as necessary given the
current presence of OWASP in that region.

Last year, we had very good trainers that were not affiliated to OWASP
Corporate members. I simply cannot understand why we need to mix
trainers with their employers. Several of the trainers participate in
OWASP in their personal time, not as a company involvement.
I would be one that would be prevented from being a trainer as my
employer is not a corporate member. Also, given that we have no
corporate members in Brazil (AFAIK), we would have a hard time putting
out a training session for our conferences.
