To keep the quality high and the focus on OWASP and its related projects, I
wanted to propose a global speaker selection committee assembled and used
for Global AppSec events.  This committee or task-force would be called on
for each of the Global AppSec events in 2013 and promoted as an opportunity
for industry volunteers to get involved at a global level very much like
the global committees.  One perk would be free access to the conferences
and exposure that John Doe CISO of ABC Bank/Insurance/Shipping Company
etc..etc..  is on the selection committee etc..  We start with the

next global conferences and committee chair meeting.

In a simular thought process,  Kate has started to pull together training

help us accelerate the selection of training firms too.
