Global Chapter Committee,

Kate has requested funds from both the Global Conference Committee and
Global Projects Committee to help fund a total of $2100 for two OWASP
Projects to be able to participate in the Open Source Expo at OWASP AppSec
USA 2012.  Both of these committees have funds that could be used for this,
but so far neither one is stepping up to cover it.  While I don't believe
this is the responsibility of the Chapters Committee, I do believe that we
are in a position to take the moral high ground here and help fund this
effort.  I realize that officially we do not recognize Owasp On The Move
funds to be used for conferences, but considering that we have not used any
of the $5k budgeted for OOTM this year, I'd like to ask that we make an
exception here.  The two projects we are trying to assist are:

https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Mantra_OS
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Hackademic_Challenges_Project

Both are OWASP Projects and I believe it will be of significant benefit to
the Foundation being able to demo themselves in front of the 800-1000
expected attendees at OWASP AppSec USA 2012.  I'd ask that you all please
take a moment to think about the benefits here as well as our potential
funding source and it's under-utilization this year, and consider a vote in
favor of providing this funding.  Thank you.

Sincerely,

Josh Sokol
Chair, OWASP Global Chapter Committee
