Weve had the same fee structure for the past 2+ years and it seems
reasonable to change it to help generate more revenue for OWASP. Do you
think its appropriate to adjust them now or in the near future? I have some
We could put these prices in place right away, or announce that they will
increase on some date, like Oct 1 or Jan 1.
Annual Membership Fee

support to our efforts.

Here are some proposed price changes from me. Please suggest alternatives.
We dont want to price people out of the market. I.e., the idea is to get
more revenue and more members, not less.
Individual Members Same Price
Edu-NonProfit - $500
End User Small (<100), Medium >100, large > 1000, very large > 10,000) -
$2K, $7K, $10K, $20K
Consulting Small < 10, Medium <50, Large > 100, very large > 500) - $3K,
$7K, $10K, $20K
Vendors Small annual revenue < $50M, Large > $50M annual revenues - $10K,
Also, should we remove the language and use OWASP Materials in their
the Consulting and Vendor Org
p.s. Dinis I know you want Microsoft to contribute more than $9K. They are
talking about contributing $9K plus ¼ of a full time developer plus some
significant content. Thats worth more like the $50K you are hoping for, but
its not all cash, which to me is fine.
