Yes, to clarify my comment. I believe that the 40% should go to the chapter selected by the new member. (I'm in agreement with Matt)

If membership is available during conference registration it should still be treated as if it was a completely independent sign-up and payment, with the applicable portion going wherever membership dues go and the 'split' going to the new member's designated chapter (if any--if none it goes the same place as the rest of the money).

If they are willing to take the time to separate the attendees into their respective chapters, then I think that due credit should be given to ensure that they get the 60/40 membership split.  If they are unwilling to take the time to do that, then it should just get rolled into the conference budget.  For what it's worth, "take the time" is basically just a matter of setting up a custom field in RegOnline before you start accepting registrations.  That field exists for LASCON 2011 and our intent is to pass the membership money back along to the chapter the member came from.  This incentive helps encourage the other OWASP chapters in Texas to participate in LASCON.

Historically, this amount has applied to the conference budget, but I want to make sure we are continuing to do what we are supposed to be doing from an operational perspective.
