Board -

As a follow up to the  in-person Board Meeting in Hamburg, Germany on
August 19, 2013<https://docs.google.com/a/owasp.org/document/d/1cYsp608TDiNfdLv60mePuCjC412oz_MJSIzFEuQED6w/edit>
 the board agree that OWASP should move to a tiered structure Corporate
Membership - The board voted to move to a tiered corporate membership
model. This enables organizations to support OWASP at a variety of levels.
We are still flushing out the final details and we'll soon update the
membership matrix. However, there will be 4 tiers ($2,000, $5,000, $20,000,
$50,000) with varying benefits provided to the corporate member for each

Additionally, the Board determined that corporate member logos should move
to an Acknowledgement Page - To provide a single clear page that
acknowledges our corporate member supporters we will move the corporate
logs from the bottom of the OWASP home page to a dedicated acknowledgement
page. The home page will have clear graphics that encourage viewers to
click and view the acknowledgements page.

*Subsequent to this board discussion, the staff put together a draft of
what this tiered structure would look like. *Our goal is to collect
community feedback and finalize by a Board Vote by December 1, 2013. The
transition would start January 1, 2014 with banner ads and logos being
removed from the home page by February 1, 2014.

I am also sending out this request for feedback to the governance
list/leader's list/ and social media and Kelly will be looking for input
from our current corporate supporters.  Please help us in sharing your
thoughts and encouraging others to do the same!
