Hello Global Chapter Committee Members,

As I am new to this mailing list I wanted to introduce myself.  My name is 
Josh Sokol and I am the current Austin Chapter President and Co-Chair of 
the Lonestar Application Security Conference (LASCON).  After two years as 
the President of our Chapter I have decided that it is time for me to step 
aside and let someone else run it for a while which frees me up for a new 
way to contribute to OWASP.  Obviously, I still have our chapters best 
interests at heart which is why I thought I could continue to be an asset 
to both the Foundation and my chapter by serving on your committee.  I 
have been involved with OWASP in some capacity for about 5 years now. I've 
helped grow our chapter from 10-20 person meetings to averaging between 40 
and 50.  We do security events on at least a weekly basis including our 
chapter meetings, study groups, happy hours, secure tacos, and LASCON just 
to name a few.  I'm hoping that working with the Chapters Committee we can 
use some of the things we're doing with the Austin Chapter as a template 
for other chapters to follow.  I am full of ideas and the drive to make 
things happen.  I look forward to being a strong contributor here.

Sincerely,

Josh Sokol (CISSP, CCNA, GWAS)
