Board -

Regarding upcoming meetings, we have the following meetings schedule (and a
few notes on getting your travel booked)

   - AppSec Europe - meeting on Friday, June 27

      UK, if you will need a hotel room, we have a room block secured -
      email Laura with your  arrival and departure dates and she will arrange a
      hotel room for you.

      Flights to UK - if OWASP is paying please book through concur (Amex
      travel)  if possible
      - AppSec USA - meeting Tuesday evening Sept 16th.

      Instructions for rooming and flights - same as for UK
      - November 12 9am-12pm, virtual

For the in person meetings - i know we have had some audio issues in the
past and Josh had some good ideas for improving this in the future. Would
someone from the board who will be at those in person meetings be willing
to take point on this to help the set up? I won't be at either, but can
order supplies in advance if needed.

In the spirit of planning ahead, and since I will be out from the end of
August until mid October I wanted to share a couple of thoughts:

1.* Review of taxes for 2013* - Our taxes are going to be due on August
15th. Part of the tax preparation service that KPMG provides is that they
will attend (in person or virtual) a board meeting to walk through the
taxes with us and answer questions. I would like to schedule a meeting for
the last week of July or first week of August for this... allowing a bit of
time between that meeting and the deadline in case any follow up or changes
are needed.

2. *Q2 Board check in meeting* - I think it would be helpful to plan a call
to check in on finances and strategic goal progress after the completion of
Q2 but before I go on leave. This could be combined with the review of
taxes meeting but doesn't have to be. This would be sometime between mid
July and mid-August.

3. *Workflow for 2015 planning and budget*
Ideally, I would like to see the board finalize the strategic goals for
2015 before budgeting for the year. So, unless you disagree, I think it
would be appropriate for me to work with the staff and provide general
thoughts on the strategic goals for Board consideration before my leave.
(Assuming you would work on this at the September in person at AppSec USA).
Then, when I get back I can work with the staff and Josh as treasurer to
come up with a draft budget for overall board discussion and review on the
November meeting.
