I have been working with Omnipress (our vendor for conference guides) on a
proposal for production of a quarterly journal/magazine/newsletter .  This
is an online journal that can be posted to our website as well as printed
“on demand” for distribution globally.  I have heard from several of the
committees that this type of tangible OWASP product would be extremely
useful for companies, chapters, members, and individuals.

 

I am attaching a sample of a very plain journal they have produced in the
past as well as their proposal.  Essentially, the initial set up of the
template would be $935 and then each subsequent journal would cost about
$8/page.  Print copies would be available based on the schedule included.
They take care of the shipping.

 

I know we have discussed the possibility of selling advertising in our
newsletters in the past.  There were discussions for and against selling
space.  I think that this is a great opportunity to create a bit of much
needed revenue for the foundation.  We can include in the template a couple
of ½ page ads or full page ads.  Since these issues will be essentially
always available through the archives, we should be able to sell the spaces
for $3K or more.  As long as the advertisements are clearly identified as
advertisements and they are not connected with any articles, I can not think
of any reason we would not want to consider this.

 

So, I am anxiously awaiting feedback and approval to move forward with this.
