I'm more than willing to be an extra set of hands, and feel that having someone to talk to sponsors, attendees, objectively rate the event, get lessons kearned are definitely valuable things but as far as need of actual help (one of the big reasons for liasions and providing direct support), is guess they are pretty squared away and sending people to travel on OWASP dime is expensive.

Had Richard not canceled I am confident it would have been good for him to go and we would derive value from his trip.  But he did cancel and this provides opportunity for us to save some $ that we had obligated and reallocation it to other efforts.However if there are going to be worthwhile in person meetings with other chairs/the board this UPS the value proposition in my mind (and informs the decision that I should be the replacement, when I heard these in person meetings were occuring before Richard cancled I was afraid that the gcc would be under-represented).

But if the other Chairs and Board are willing to *commit* their evenings (6p-10p) to a meeting over the course of a few nights, I'm certainly open to it.

I’d suggest Monday night, that way people can travel there during the day and not have to arrive a day early, but that’s probably tough for many as if they are not delivering or attending training, then they are probably arriving Weds, not Monday, so maybe Weds night?
