Unfortunately, a lot of these just fell through the cracks as some of  
our members have been inactive. I will let the GEC members leading  
those initiatives provide a status update other than what was posted  
on the wiki a while back. With that said, I know some of these  
initiatives such as the speakers bureau project are pretty much done  
but have not been advertised, Martin correct me if I am wrong.  
Furthermore, I can see items like the Train the trainers and the  
online assessment portal be replaced with the CBT project and the  
training initiative we have been discussing.

I want to take this opportunity to ask the inactive members: Mano  
Paul, Eduardo Neves and Andrzej Targosz to please get back to us and  
provide an status update for those tasks they have agreed to take the  
lead on. If we do not get an update in the next month or so we more  
likely assigned new takers or replace it with another task as it seems  
to be the case for the online assessment and training portal.

For the current active members I want to propose the following, if you  
or anyone you know can contribute to these initiatives in anyway  
please take the lead or send them our way. We need to start  
"recruiting" people who like us share a passion for application  
security and do want to volunteer some cycles to make a positive  
impact in the industry. I understand when we first started this  
committee we feared to have too many cooks in the kitchen and thereby  
no getting much accomplished, but this approached did not help us in  
the long term and I think it is best to have more people who have the  
cycles to volunteer their time and help us make progress. Thoughts?
