Hi Raj,

Thanks for reaching out to us. We will help you with your chapter
issue and "get its identity" as you suggested.

For now, can you answer a few questions so that we can get better
understanding of the situation?

1. Who is the nominal leader on paper?
2. When was the last time the chapter had an in-person meeting? How
often do you have these meetings?
3. Is the chapter listed on the OWASP global leader list?
4. Is the mailing list active?
5. If the situation requires, will someone or a group of people step up to lead?

Please get back to us with the answers and we will help you.

Thank you!
