Hi committee members,
We are setting up the 2009 summit in Washington on Nov 11, one day prior to
the DC conference.

The Summit page online: http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Summit_2009

The program will be :
1) OWASP overview (board)
2) 6 committee workshops (one after the other - to have everybody
participate)
3) vote for the 6th board member

Each committee should prepare it's own workshop and start putting their
outline on the Summit page
http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Summit_2009
In essence this is the place where you - as committee members - explain what
your are doing and to get the rest of the OWASP community involved!

Entrance for committee members is free.
Regarding travel costs we have discussed long within the board on how to
handle this. We really want every committee member to come and travel
funding should be no blocking factor. But you all know that this year is
difficult budgetwise for OWASP.
We have come up with the following steps:
1. We prefer your employer funds your travel/hotel expenses. There is a
sample letter you can use to convince your employer to come up with the
budget. Link:

2. If the previous step is not an option, check your local chapter to cover
(some) of your costs. Chapter budgets online

3. If the previous steps don't work - and you can not pay your travel
yourself - OWASP can cover your travel expenses up to a certain limit
depending on where you come from, US or abroad (will require board
approval).

We hope to see you all in Washington!

Seba, Dinis, Paulo & Kate

PS: let us know if you will make it?
