Dear Fellow Chapter Leaders,

Global Chapter Committee invites you to Latin American Chapter Leader
Workshop at AppSec Latam 2011, in Porto Alegre-RS, Brazil. *The workshop
will be on Wednesday, October 5, from 1:30pm to 4:30pm.* Its format will be
based on the successful chapter workshop at AppSec EU in Dublin, earlier
this year. (We will also be having a similar Chapter Workshop for US and
Canadian Chapter Leaders at AppSec USA in Minneapolis, MN in Sept.)

While we are still working on the
agenda<https://www.owasp.org/index.php/AppSecLatam2011_chapters_workshop_agenda>,
it will include review of the chapter handbook, managing chapter finances,
Top 10 advice, and how to cross-pollinate and cooperate among  chapters.

We strongly encourage you to participate in this opportunity. *Please add
your name and local chapter to the "Participants" list by editing the wiki
page: *
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/AppSecLatam2011_chapters_workshop_agenda

We would like to ask the following.

   - Save the date, October 5, 2011, from 1:30pm to 4:30pm, for the
   workshop.
   - Register for AppSec Latin America 2011 conference. Email
   AppSec2011 at AppSecLatam.org for registration code.
   - Start making travel arrangements -- flight and hotel reservations -- if
   your company or chapter has funds available.
   - If needed, ask for funding by emailing Sarah Baso<sarah.baso at owasp.org>,
   administrator for the chapter committee.
   - Start thinking what topics to discuss.
   - Stay tuned to further emails and updates to the Wiki
page<https://www.owasp.org/index.php/AppSecLatam2011_chapters_workshop_agenda>
   .


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
OWASP. *All requests for funding/sponsorship to attend the Chapter Workshop
and AppSec Latin America conference must be submitted by August 22, 2011.*

We will try to have an option to participate remotely, via Skype or WebEx,
for those who cannot make it. Email Sarah Baso <sarah.baso at owasp.org> if you
are interested and she will make sure you have the necessary information to
connect with us.

If any questions, please email us.

Best regards,
Gustavo
