Dear Fellow Chapter Leaders,
Global Chapter Committee invites you to US and Canadian Chapter Leader
Workshop at AppSec USA 2011, in Minneapolis. *The workshop will be on
September 21, from noon to 3:00PM*. Its format will be based on the
successful chapter workshop at AppSec EU in Dublin, earlier this year.
While we are still working on the agenda, it will closely resemble the
agenda at AppSec EU. It will include review of the chapter handbook,
managing chapter finances, Top 10 advice, and how to cross-pollinate and
cooperate among chapters. EU event's agenda can be seen below.
We strongly encourage you to participate in this opportunity. Chapter
leaders are encouraged to use chapter funds for the travel. Chapter leaders
will get a free admission to the conference. The committee has limited funds
available for chapter leaders with limited chapter funds.
We would like to ask the following.
- Save the date, September 21, 2011, from noon to 3:00PM, for the
- Register for AppSec USA event. Ask Lorna Alamri for registration code.
- Start making travel arrangements -- hotel rooms are running out -- if
your chapter has funds available.
- If needed, ask for funding by emailing me and Sarah Baso, administrator
for the chapter committee.
- Start thinking what topics to discuss.
- Stay tuned to further emails and upcoming Wiki page.
A word about funding. While we wish we could fund every chapter leader, due
to the limited amount of budget allocated for this event, we may not be able
to fund 100% to all the requests. We will have a deadline for applying
funding, and after that deadline, we will make funding decision in a fair
and transparent manner. When you apply for funding, please highlight your
past contributions to OWASP and your future plans for the local chapter and
We will try to have an option to participate, via Skype, for those who
cannot make it.
If any questions, please email us.
