What do you propose?

   - First of all, we want to be able to properly promote the summit among
   project leaders/industry experts to contribute and participate together
   - Create clear proposals per project assisting to the summit
   - Meet with industry resources at Denver to contribute and solve very
   specific issues and have a clear output plan results for each project

Have you consulted with Laura?
yes, she mentioned that rooms for the summit has been allocated
(space/rooms) this is done in advance and actually the summit is been
promoted on the appsec us website.
 She could confirm this information.

The board can rubber stamp it after Laura has worked with you if it was not
already budgeted and associated with AppSec event.

Do I have to fulfill specific requirements regarding organizing the project
summit? if this is the case, please send me which are and I can set a plan
with Laura and submit it to the board.

I don't believe and amount has been agreed. Do you have an idea of costs?
Actually I want to encourage everyone to pay his own accommodation and
costs, with exception to those volunteers that will be there to organize
the summit.
In past conferences, members assisting to the summit received a free pass
to the conference as a reward for their volunteer efforts (thus work).
I have been busy during the summit that I didn't have anytime to assist to
the conference, and actually if I organize the summit I will not be
assisting to the conference
So you let me know how much can be made available and I see how many
volunteers I can set to work.

This is my basic plan that can be worked out in detail.

The main purpose of this summit is to work on improving the tools with
industry participation of experts of other foundations/organizations that
are interested and have shown interest in these OWASP project and tools
such as
(as example of ongoing activities)

   - Python Framework project(Enrico Branca) with Mozilla (Python
   developers will be invited by Simon Bennetts) and GE developers that have
   contacted Enrico regarding his project
   - Code review (Larry/Gary) , invite some industry experts/developers
   from Microsoft,Oracle(java),Python and anyone wanted to join
   - PCI toolkit(Johanna) invite PCI experts and provide
   - Creating continuous build security  and QA review process (Jason
   - Mind Mapping of OWASP tools(Enrico/Johanna)
   - Record summit sessions(Jonathan Marcil)
   - Other projects==> Must be invited , they must provide a clear plan
   just as we will do (Code Review,Python Framework, PCI) with participation
   of industry experts for feedback
   - Promote industry participation to the summit using a campaign through
   linked-in and Google Ad sense
