All -
Last week we conducted a Chapter Workshop at AppSec Latin America in Porto
Alegre, Brazil and achieved much success in discussing regional chapter
issues as well as "best practices" for starting a new chapter or
jump-starting a chapter losing steam.

KEY OUTCOMES: Priorities of the Latin American Community

   - Focus on Localization - starting with translation of key OWASP
   documents (such as Chapter Handbook, Brand Use Rules, Bylaws) into Spanish
   and Portuguese
   - Continued regional “Meet up” of chapter leaders and interested parties
   - Set up Brazil Foundation - Involve others in LA region, so process can
   be replicated in other countries if becomes necessary in the future.
   - Need better Latin America representation in Committees.  Currently:
   Global Chapters Committee (Gustavo Barbato) and Conferences Committee (Lucas
   Ferreira and Cassio Goldschmidt) have Latin American representation.
    Membership, education, and projects need representation. As a result of the
   workshop the following individuals have stepped-up:
      - Education - Luiz Duarte (application completed)
      - Membership - Leonardo Buonsanti (in process of finishing
      application)
