What do you mean with
"OWASP board candidates should be free from commercial affiliation"?

What will be the criteria to (dis)continue the trial?

> I would like to propose the following on behalf of the
membership committee. We plan to run a test drive from May 1 to August 1,
2012. The original document has been shared with you. I have also added it
to the agenda of the April board meeting.
> New Group Discount for OWASP Individual Membership
> What is the issue:
> Currently there is no group discount for individual membership.
> What we propose:
> Offer group discount in order to attract corporate sponsored individual
> What’s discussed
> Group discount helps to attract individual supporters from a company, a
chapter, a conference, etc.
> The biggest concern is a company purchasing a large number of membership
in order to control the election. The following measures should help to
prevent this from happening:
> OWASP reserve the right to suspend and/or revoke all members of a company
in case of a fraud.
> The individual must use his/her company email to register. This helps
tracking the individual back to the sponsoring corporation.
> The individual must reply to the confirmation email to become a member.
This prove that the individual exists and wants to participate in OWASP.
> OWASP board candidates should be free from commercial affiliation.
> Publicize the news when a company purchases a large amount of OWASP
memberships. The reason is that sunshine is the best disinfector. The news
may also attract the company’s competitors to join OWASP which will further
prevent fraud.
> Change RegOnline to add “For 3 or more contact OWASP”. The supporters
will click on the link and send an email to Kelly Santalucia who will
follow up with the supporters.
> Run a test drive for 3 months, from May 1 to Aug. 1, 2012. Review at the
end of the test drive and decide if to continue.
> Other organizations already do that. E.g. Open Source Software Institute
