Hi Ofer,

Congratulations on reorg of OWASP Israel! I am sure the new blood and
energy will help move your chapter to the next level.

As for OWASP On The Move, its primary purpose is to bring speakers to
chapter meetings, not conferences. Also, OOTM kicks in after a local
chapter has exhausted its own funds.

For OWASP Israel conference, I would suggest two options.

1. Work with the conference committee for their support, or
2. Ask for "Chapter Nurturing Funds" from the chapter committee.

As for #2, these funds are intended for new and smaller chapters to
kick start their activities. If you wish to apply for these funds,
please send me an email with your plans to use it, and the committee
will vote on it. The amount should be between $500-$1000.

Please let me know if you have questions.

> Subject: OWASP Israel Organization Hi Kate, Following our discussions in the summit, I am pushing forward changes in OWASP Israel.We had a long board meeting for OWASP Israel last Tuesday and have decided on better distribution of responsibilities between board members, as well as better organization of the chapter. BoardThe Israeli board is now consisted of 5 members:Ofer Shezaf (Chapter Founder), Avi Douglen, Or Katz, Adi Sharabani, Ofer Maor. (Ofer S. is back to the appsec field J)They are all cc’ed on this mail as well. If anybody wants an owasp.org mail, please ask Kate J ResponsibilitiesOfer S. & Avi D. will assist in mailing list moderationOfer S. will takeover the Wiki site Or K. will start Top 10 in HebrewWe will split organizing meeting between the board members.  BudgetWe will have organized budget this year, as discussed with you previously.By mid year we should already have Quotium, Imperva’s and EY’s allocation(Do you know if EY finished their process of joining as a Corporate Member?) MembershipWe will start pushing regional and individual membership based on the new membership model.We would also like to be able to encourage people to participate more to get honorary membership (sent a mail about it to GMC) Other-          Speaker’s Swag – we want to have some swags to give to speakers to encourage participation. What are our options? Can OWASP help in that?-          AppSec Israel 2011 – We’re still confirming dates but should be 13/9 or 14/9 so no conflict with AppSec US. Will update you and Mark as we go along. Can we get help in bringing a cool Key Note?  See also next question about budget… -          OWASP on the Move – how much budget can we get for the AppSec Israel event? Is it 500$ or 1000$?  Cheers, ---Ofer MaorCTO, HackticsChairman, OWASP Israel Mobile: +972 (54) 6545406US: +1 (646) 7700646Office: +972 (9) 9565840Fax: +972 (9) 9500047LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/in/ofermaor Web: www.hacktics.com
