Gustavo brought up a good point during Tuesday call regarding money
transfers between the US and some countries, especially those in Latin
America and Asia.
To quote the minutes:
"GB noted that there is a significant problem in Brazil (as well as other
countries in SA/LA) regarding international funds transfers. He wondered if
OWASP could look into setting up a Non-profit foundation in Brazil to handle
expenses/fund transfers related to the local chapters as well as
conferences. SB to discuss this with KH and other OWASP personnel and get
back to GB on the issue."
I have been thinking along the same lines too, especially how a chapter, or
a conference, in China would run with their funds managed by the Foundation
in the US -- actually, they can't, and they don't.
I think we should realize this fact, and start to discuss how funds are
handled internationally. This could lead to organization structure changes,
Please give some thoughts to it. Please reach out to chapter leaders in
different parts of the world that you have relationships with and ask for
their challenges and opinions. While not urgent, we should discuss this at
one of the monthly meetings.
