The new one is the *"**Proposal to operationalise OWASP ‘Chapter-lead’
Training activities and the concept of ‘OWASP Academies’"* which you can
read more details at the agenda page (or below).

I was going to bring this earlier but I didn't want to take away your focus
from the other issues I raised recently (like the 'OWASP Commercial

I expect this to be an easy decision for you since a) we have the budget and
b) the 'OWASP Chapter-Lead Training model' is starting work quite nicely
(but needs an injection of energy and focus)

See you in a couple hours



Proposal to operationalise OWASP ‘Chapter-lead’ Training activities and the
concept of ‘OWASP Academies’


   - Main focus on:
      - Normalization and ‘packaging’ of the OWASP ‘Chapter-lead’ events so
      that they can easily be executed by the local OWASP Chapters
         - Creation of the ‘OWASP Training Pack’ (book + pdf + dvd) with the
         materials developed by successful deliveries of OWASP
‘Chapter-lead’ events
      - Establishment of working relationships with ‘OWASP friendly’
         - starting with the OWASP Chapter-lead training courses, but with a
         view to evolve those courses into OWASP ‘Academies’
      - Negotiate potential sponsorship opportunities for the OWASP
      ‘Chapter-lead’ events
      - Logistical organization of OWASP ‘Chapter-lead’ training activities:
         - multiple individual OWASP ‘Chapter-lead’ training events
         - (try to) organize a ‘OWASP Tour’ of 20x training events in
         Oct/Nov 2010 (with US trainers)

   - Work closely with multiple OWASP Committees, namely on:
      - OWASP Chapters Committee: the ‘soft’ (for now) requirement to
      implement the OWASP ‘Chapter-lead’ training courses
      - OWASP Education Committee namely: development and packaging of OWASP
      Training materials and the development of the ‘OWASP Academies concept’
      - OWASP Connections Committee: namely with its efforts to expose the
      development community to OWASP Training materials
      - OWASP Projects Committee: creating Training materials from Key OWASP

*Resources required:*

   - 1x ‘Project Manager’ (to be responsible for the execution for the
   proposed activities)
      - Hired as an independent contractor
      - contract length: 3 months time
      - must be based in London or Lisbon
   - Operational capabilities
      - Materials Production (for example editing)
      - Marketing materials
      - travel expenses


   - 15,000 USD
      - 9,000 USD : 3 months contract (3,000 USD/month)
      - 6:000 USD: Operational expenses


   - The human resource must have wiki edition experience
   - recommended experience
      - project management
      - education experience
      - deal making
      - customer relationships
      - ideally a senior employee
