I just hung up (yes I use the phone/skype more than emails for OWASP) with the Global Connections Committee (sounds so official) but after talking to Jim Manico (the connections chair) we have another selfless effort for the good of OWASP and recommendation for consideration at the 4pm EST call today 

 Merge the connections committee into the industry committee.

Step#1 look at the list:  http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Global_Committee_Pages  <-- no really its updated.

Step#2 we merge Connections Members into Industry Committee

Step #3 we eliminate the connections committee on the wiki (quick edit) that has a fuzzy mission (worked great for the Summit)

Step #4 we have two NEW members passion filled to help the outreach and progress that bring business and relationships.

Please add this to the agenda at the 4pm EST call 800.851.3547 x3738751

As one of the topics is a GIC chair, then the members of the committee can vote in the GIC Chair.
