[Owasp-board] Free samples of OWASP books?

I suggest going for a 'starters' pack covering some points / money to aid a
starting chapter.

Chapters need
* money for catering => minimal coverage, to be provided by location
* books / t-shirts => through points
* topics - speakers => through OotM

Owasp needs:
=> incentive to have people on the mailing lists
=> incentive to have organisatons / people become member
=> incentive to have people helping out on owasp projects
=> incentive to promote Owasp locally (at least 4 chapter meetings!)
=> incentive for people talking at other Owasp events - chapters
To be decided how this results in points.
It is up to the chapter leader to claim this on a yearly base and have a
minimal administration for :
* points balance
* money balance (by local sponsors - all payments through OWASP)

The challenge is to have a balanced approach: it should really help chapters
to (re)start and for succesfull chapters to become even better.

This seems like a very reasonable request from John.  Who has the ball with
the "leaders pack" we were going to put together.  If we don't have enough
money to buy books for each chapter, how are we coming with the plan to let
chapters earn OWASP points that they can spend on this kind of thing by
signing up members?

Could someone (Alison/Paolo/Tom) pick this up and get it done?  Thanks,

Hi Jeff!

On April 1st OWASP Sweden has its kick-off meeting and alot of people are
registering to get a seat.
   The OWASP books have been discussed on the leaders list and some suggest
the chapter meetings are suitable for promoting them. I'd very much like to
have some of the most interesting OWASP books on display on our kick-off
meeting. But since people will browse them (sticky fingers etc) I'd rather
not put personal books on display. Can I order OWASP books for free for this
purpose? Or at some discount?

   Regards, John
