[Owasp-board] Membership Policy and "Open"

Board,

I would like to revisit our mission statement and membership policy at 
the next board meeting if not sooner.

Our mission statement says "everyone is free to participate in OWASP" 
(http://www.owasp.org) and the Membership Revocation Policy says "A 
revoked member IS permitted to attend OWASP meetings as they are open 
and free by design." 
(https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Membership_Revocation)

I move that we change this. There are situations when OWASP meetings are 
held at private companies with a limit to how many people can attend, 
and certain folks wishing to attend may not be allowed to due to that 
constraint. I would also like to consider changing the membership 
revocation policy.

This is an incredibly difficult issue messing with the core of OWASP. I 
I could be completely wrong here and ask for your help in this matter.

Thank you,
Jim Manico
OWASP 2x4 Member
