(from Helen Gao)

"Helen's 2 cents: The subject of certification is very interesting
indeed and long debated within OWASP. SANS is well established and has
a large network. Their conferences are of quality but at a price. From
the Membership Committee's prospective, networking, free conference
will certainly add value to OWASP.  Is this the 1st time SANS
approached OWASP?  OWASP and SANS overlap, or compete, in a way. It
make sense for the two to corporate. As Eoin pointed out, the openness
of the content is probably the key issue."
