Hi everyone,


I just want to get in the loop here..are these member packs going to be
given to all OWASP members that attend a conference?  Or will they be given
to all OWASP members when they join?


In terms of the items you are talking about putting in the member packs, we
already have a bunch of stuff (lots leftover from the Australia Conference).
We have some T-shirts, pens, screen sweeps, etc.  However, this is stuff
that we generally give out to everyone attending a conference.

Great to meet you all, we appreciate the feedback...

Dinis, are you planning to have standard or premium paks done for May 20?
(difference is the sleeve, from a cost perspective we can't do the sleeve
for the standard member cost)

Hoping standard is the answer. :)  I'll need you to back out a schedule for
how many of these standard paks you'd like created for this conference so we
can make sure you have enough time to publish with LuLu the books you want
to put in the sleeves.

Or, if you think you'll need premier paks with book sleeves, please advise -

We also need a quick answer to the number of books in the sleeve per earlier
email. This will impact quotes.

Hey (OWASP Board) guys

Deb is raising some very interesting questions which you might want to chip
in with some extra ideas and comments

This thread is discussing the creation, assembling and distribution of OWASP
member packs (Deb is from LxStudios which is a Boston based graphic
design/production company). 

The objective here is to create a proposal for SoC 08 and have these packs
created and distributed in time for the next OWASP conference in Belgium
(20th May)

Hi Dinis, Eoin, Alison + Paulo

Based on the PPT - do we have three levels of membership now?

Standard  $100 - $2000 membership fee 

Premium  $3000 - $5000 membership fee 

Premium Plus (only difference is the extra free training course? Same Pak
content as Premium otherwise?) $3000 - $5000 membership - just checking

The names above sound like gasoline octane. Don't worry, these are just
placeholder names for now :)

We discussed the book sleeve housing 6-7 books, based on the PPT attached is
the sleeve to hold more than that (10-20?) that will probably be tough from
a construction standpoint. So far the vendors I've spoken to can execute the
10" wide sleeve to house the 7 books but I'm thinking wider/heavier might be
a problem. What are your thoughts?

Sounds good & it's easy to include a pen with a printed logo (any thoughts
on quality of this pen?)  I can come up with ideas if you give me a price

We can definitely do a membership card if you think that is beneficial.
Would members be required to bring member cards as I.D. to conferences, will
they know to do so? If the member card has other benefits (discounts to
purchase publications or other) - I'd recommend including member card in
Member Pak. Would the membership card have a unique member id number or code
on it? Would we produce member card 'shells' and you would imprint
numbers/names on to them?

Another idea for on-site member access to conferences is a lanyard that they
could wear around their neck -- "MEMBER PASS" sort of approach - ("backstage
pass" ) ---> this member pass could be made on site by your team (or shipped
to member when they sign up for a conference). That way they would have some
sort of I.D. on them if they forget to bring their membership card along to
the conference...
