Hi,

It was brought to our attention that Melbourne is still using the
Australia mailing list. I propose to migrate this.

We'll copy all the people listed on the current Australia mailing list
to the Melbourne mailing list.
The Australia mailing list will then be configured to be the union of
the people listed on the different Australian chapter mailing lists:
Brisbane
Melbourne
Perth
Sydney

Let me know any objections/ thoughts by this week-end, when I'll set
this in motion.

I also noticed that not all chapters are as active as we'd like them to be.
Brisbane - last activity August 2009
Melbourne - last activity December 2009
Perth - 3 meetings since last year
Sydney - 2 meetings since last year

Ideally an active chapter has at least 4 chapter meetings per year.

If you don't have the cycles/bandwidth to run the chapter: get help!
You can expand your leadership with other chapter board members or
organize a (re)election to activate people within your chapter.
Have a look at http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:Chapter_Resources
to see what's available. If you see something is missing, let us know!

If you have a good topic/speaker: move them around.
You can raise local funding through chapter sponsorship or use Owasp
on the Move funds http://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_on_the_Move to
support speakers expenses (if they can not be covered by the speaker
company).

And last but not least, help each other!

Don't hesitate to contact me or anybody else in the board / soon to be
resurrected chapter committee to help you out.

Thank you,

Kind regards,
Seba
