I appreciate your willingness to step into the leadership role for this chapter!  I have forwarded your request to the chapter committee and expect a response within 24/48 hrs. 

 

I’m looking forward to an active OWASP community in this area and am greatly encouraged by the enthusiastic interest in the chapter.

Chandrasekar is raising very valid points here, so can the Chapter Committee handle this asap?

 

I don't know all details in this case , but it looks like Chandrasekar should be given the opportunity to start a new local OWASP Chapter or to take (full or joint) leadership of the current chapter.

 

For future reference, the reason why we need here (https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Chapter ) an updated list of 'inactive OWASP chapters' (and one that had no meeting for the last 6 months is definitel in that category) , is to make cases like these very simple to deal with (and with very little local political implications). 

 

I.e., all that Chandrasekar should need to do in cases like this, is to: 

 

a) say 'This chapter xyz is inactive and I want to take its leadership'

b) here are my 5 local referrals

c) I agree with the local chapter leader "code of conduct and requirements"

Do you think  because of the scheduled meeting by march they are active; There was no activity happened  after Feb 2007 (Nearly 2 years). we are desperately  following up with Chapter Lead (Venki) for the last three months to setup a meeting to know each other , for that it took three months and also we don’t know how far it will be successfully followed . Do you think is this a right approach. We have already communicated to Chennai Chapter Mailing List that we will start a new chapter if there is no activity happening(Refer the Feb 2009 Mail Thread), and moreover we don’t want to keep on following up with people to initiate the meeting . Either  move the Chennai Chapter Lead Position to myself/zuber  or approve us to start the new chapter. We will make sure that the new chapter will provide awareness and fruitful information about Application Security on a regular basis.

 

I kindly request you to reply to our E-Mails is an timely mannerJ.

It appears as if there has been a change in the Chennai leadership and there is a meeting scheduled for the end of March.  Is it possible that you will be able to participate in this chapter?  It sounds as if there is quite a bit of interest in the area.  I am not familiar with the geographies, so if you feel a second chapter is still necessary after you communicate with the current chapter lead, let me know and I will follow up appropriately.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Hi Kate,

      We are having our first chennai chapter meeting this month. ZThe scheduled date is likely to be 20th March. I am organizing the OWASP meeting for the Chennai Chapter. From now onwards, you will be seeing regular activities.

 

I have sent out the invites to the chapter members. The response seems to be trickling in too slow...

 

 

 

Thanks & Regards,

Anand,

                Can you take care this? Also, can you see whether you can replace my name/mail id with yours or Vasu’s.

 

Thanks,

Yoosuf, I see there has not been any activity on the chapter page for quite some time.  Is this chapter still active?  I have had inquiries from others who would like to initiate a chapter meeting.

 

Please respond with your plans to activate the chapter.
