Your email below indicated that none of the board voted to approve.  I didn't recall that we were asked to approve. During our board meeting we can discuss what votes (if any) are needed from the board on the chapter handbook.

>> Thanks to all of you who got your votes in for the handbook - Gustavo, Seba, Ivy, Puneet, Tin, and Josh.  Mandeep and Andrew, if you would like to cast a vote for the record or have any minor edits, let me know by Friday.
>> 
>> The Chapter Handbook is approved with some minor edits. 
>>  I have made most of the edits suggested with the exceptions noted below  (my comments appear in red).  The new draft of the handbook appears here: https://docs.google.com/a/owasp.org/document/d/1fM12mcefOpZb-zU7unNjUvJkAR5HCImNLtkchHuuV_0/edit (also there is a copy attached). Unless I receive further comments or requested (minor) edits before Friday, I will be sending it to the Board in this form for approval. 
>> A full record of the votes appears here: https://docs.google.com/a/owasp.org/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ApZ9zE0hx0LNdHZFbEpzZlhGdlRjQVJ6UlAtWGE2MkE (also a tabulation of all the votes is attached).
>> For your records - Chapter Handbook v2 0.04 with community comments appears here: https://docs.google.com/a/owasp.org/document/d/1c9OMJoIgcYGstSdpNhAVu8Bqcwe9dIZuyje0cBBykCE/edit?hl=en_US

>> MINOR EDITS REQUESTED BUT NOT MADE:
>> 
>> Section 2.2
>> --Approved with minor edits: In my Opinion one meeting per quarter is achievable  (PM)
>> 
>> --Approved with minor edits: I prefer 1, but not a breaking point for me (SD)
>> 
>> The number of meetings was a non-trivial part of this section, and since 4 people approved "2" as the minimum number of required numbers and Seba preferred 1 (but not a breaking point), I left the number at 2.
>> 
>> Section 2.3
>> --I would not make the calendar entry mandatory (SD)
>> Once again, I see this as a non-trivial part of this section.  5 people approved "as is" so I left the item in.
>> 
>> Section 2.6
>> --maybe slightly reword the title, but can't think of a correct phrase that best represents the paragraph content (SD)
>> Not sure how it should be reworded, but Seba send your thoughts  or ideas by Friday otherwise I will leave it as is.
>> 
>> Section 4.3.7
>> -- Apparently this process for reimbursement has changed.  Kate and Alison now have a form that you need to submit reimbursements to." (JS)
>> Not sure if this new process has been approved/finalized by the Board and ready to roll out.  Waiting for word from Kate and hopefully will insert new instructions here before I send new handbook out to the Chapter Leaders after the first of the year. (I will also keep the GCC updated on this)
>> 
>> Section 7.3.6
>> This would be a good place to mention the new OWASP SurveyMonkey account. (JS)
>> 
>> This actually isn't an "OWASP" all account as of right now.  It is just a conference committee account that I am administering.  The main reason for this is that it isn't possible to change user permissions and Kate has entered her cc/personal information to pay for the account, so we don't want to just send the login (and her cc/personal information) to everyone. While we may be able to work something out in the future, I think it is better to leave this out of the handbook.
