Dear Chapter Leaders,

Greetings! It is my first message to all the chapter leaders on behalf of
the Global Chapter Committee.

Primary goals of the Chapter Committee are to support local chapters and to
be the chapters' "voice" to the OWASP Board. As such, I would like your
opinion and vote on the following matter.

Global Conference Committee has come up with a policy on profit sharing
model for OWASP conference. Since this is something that affects all
chapters -- especially those that are planning on or thinking about holding
conferences, please cast a vote on the policy below.

To vote, please go to http://www.doodle.com/haci7qmnqamu4x7g, indicate your
chapter's name (e.g., Los Angeles) in "Your name" field, and cast your Yes
or No vote.

Again, the URL is: http://www.doodle.com/haci7qmnqamu4x7g

Voting will close on May 15 Sunday midnight California time.

You will get a chance to verify your vote after the voting is closed. I will
send out a reminder email.

The committee will compile the results and present them to the Board.

Pointing out the obvious --

1. Votes are public.
2. Please cast one vote per chapter, by the chapter president or the person
authorized by the president.
3. Please do not vote with other chapter's name. It's a fraud.

Thank you very much for your cooperation!

Subject: OWASP event profit sharing for local chapters!


Earn up to $5000 for your chapter by hosting an OWASP Event!  Local chapters
who would like to host an OWASP Local, Regional or Global AppSec event can
now receive a portion of the event profits earmarked for your chapter.  This
new policy rewards chapters who volunteer to take on the challenge of
hosting an OWASP event with the following schedule:

   - Global AppSec Conference - 25% of event profits with a $5,000 USD
   maximum ($10,000 for multi-chapter events)
   - Regional/Theme Events - 30% of event profits with a $4,000 USD maximum
   - Local Events - 50% of profits with a $3000 USD maximum

All you need to do is coordinate your event with the Global Conferences
Committee using the OWASP Conference Management System (
https://ocms.owasp.org), answer a few basic questions and get your event
approved.  If your event makes a profit you can earn some extra money for
your local chapter’s budget!  The Conferences Committee is excited about
this new program and can’t wait to work with you to host your OWASP event!

About the policy:
In addition to the Membership Committee's 60/40 membership income sharing
model, the GCC felt it was appropriate to provide a mechanism for local
chapters who volunteer significant time and effort to host OWASP events to
reap some financial benefit from that effort for their local chapter
budgets.  The committee considered the needs of the OWASP Foundation, local
chapter entrepreneurship, and a potential disparity between "have and have
not" chapters when debating the decision.  For more information on this
policy you can reference the GCC
, GCC vote<https://docs.google.com/a/owasp.org/document/d/1eVX6lDyAtsUBrDKp6C7pcPTk8ObCv-QgnFAGq_zj510/edit?hl=en#>
 and OWASP Board Vote<https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Minutes_March_8,_2011> on
the subject.

The Global Conferences Committee, Mark Bristow, Chair
