[Owasp-board] FW: Invitation to talk about OWASP in Norway

I have picked up ownership of OotM.  I just looked at the 'Payment Policy'
and it states that the maximum amount per speaker is $500, and $1,000 in
special circumstances (does this qualify as a special circumstance?).  Also,
keep in mind that there is a limit of $2,000 per person, per year.  

So I guess the board just needs to take a vote as to if this qualifies as a
special circumstance, and we can grant Seba $1,000.

Sounds fine to me as long as you are staying with the OotM rules, which I
think has limits per trip and total useage per person rules. Alison should
be starting to manage that.

Alison, have you picked up ownership of OotM?

I have the possibility to talk on OWASP at this conference in Norway.
It would also support them to start with the chapter.

If I go (not 100% sure yet), can I cover travel/lodging with OotM budget?

Thank you for you positive attitude. The preliminary program is attached. It
seems to become a good conference program and we expect like 150 people. We
hope to be able to finish the program next week. Do you have a proposal for
a title and some description?

Kind regards,
