So we have a couple of thousand people across the globe who are on the mail lists, are paid up members, are involve in chapters etc.

We only raised circa $800 in direct funds for projects....#fail

We talked about one of the primary goals of the board was to raise funds at the Portugal summit....I did not see much of this in terms of advertising or pushing the message. I would be lying if I said I was not disappointed. 

Appsec eu: 300 million people in the eu. Currently we have 64 registrations, a handful of sponsors and 5 training places paid for.  A little over a month to go....U gotta ask yourself why b-sides etc sells out in hours and OWASP struggles??

We as a foundation still have not addressed DHS host. Our first call was 2 months ago. We are waiting 2 months  for a list from GPC.

Thoughts.
