How do you plan to handle Membership signups under this new policy (i.e bullet #2 below)?

This issue has come up recently and I can't seem to find a final policy decision on it, so here we go.  We should get this squared away with a vote after some debate.  Things that people thought it were are:

> Chapters get 30% of Conference Profits (note, profits not revenue), Conference keeps membership income

In cases where there are multiple host chapters, 30% of conference profits, up to a cap of $4,000 shall be split evenly among the host chapters, or via any distribution agreed upon by the host chapters.  This applies to Global AppSec and Regional Conferences.  Profits from local events will be split 50/50 with the foundation.
> Now, before we get into "why do chapters need to get a split at all", a camp I used to be a member of, hosting an AppSec conference or regional conference is a HUGE undertaking, as we all know.  I think this is a fair policy in compensating the local chapter who volunteers much of their time to put on a conference.  While the amounts are capped I think it's a reasonable cap as chapters don't generally have large expenses.
