[Owasp-board] Proposed change to Section 3.03 of the bylaws

Below is new proposed text.  I made the following changes (you can read the original here <https://www.owasp.org/images/9/92/April2014OWASPFoundationByLaws.pdf> ):

 

1.    Removed the footnotes.  They were capturing the changes, but there's a section at the end of the bylaws that already does that.  Footnote 1 on page 4 should also be removed (and added to the section at the end of the bylaws).

2.    Removed all references to quarterly meetings and the number of total meetings.  Instead, it now stipulates the minimum number of meetings required, but the board can determine how many meetings total are needed for the upcoming year and can now modify it as needed.

3.    Changed the board member attendance requirement to a percentage instead of a fixed number.

4.    Clarified that while the meetings are open to the public, certain portions of the meeting may be closed to just the board members and their delegates.

PROPOSED

 

SECTION 3.03 Regular Meetings. The Board of Directors shall have regular meetings lasting 4 to ­6 hours as needed.  A link to the board meeting agenda’s and the historical minutes is here: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Board_Meetings.  Meetings shall be at such dates, times, and places as the Board shall determine in December of the preceding year and as amended by the Board. In no event will there be less than one meeting per quarter.  These meetings will be open to public attendance, however, certain portions of the meeting may be closed to board members  and their delegates when required for legal reasons, or to shield liability, or to handle personnel issues, or similar.  Attendance in person or virtually by board members is required at no less than 75% of the total meetings each year and shall be highly encouraged to meet in person at least once annually at a date to be announced and agreed upon.

 

 

2 OWASP Board of Directors will hold quarterly board meetings lasting 4­6 hours each. The schedule of meetings will be set by the board in December before the year. It is likely the the board meetings will take place on Saturdays or on a dedicated day before a large OWASP conference. This change is a result of the success of the longer format board meeting and also a result of the Executive Director role that has enabled full time involvement and focus on OWASP operations. Board members must attend (in person or virtually) 3 of the 4 meetings to fulfill the attendance requirements. This will take effect in January, 2014. Changes passed August 19, 2013.

3 “and shall be highly encouraged to meet in person at least once annually at a date to be announced and agreed upon” amendment to document passed June 10, 2013.
