[Owasp-board] Fabio - Conflict of Interest

When we start pushing initiatives at OWASP it is imperative we state 
conflict of interests along the way.

Every time training comes up, I do my best to state a conflict of 
interest and/or recuse myself from that voting.

Fabio, you were and are pushing training initiatives at OWASP. In a big 
way, you want us to move into the "deliver commercial training".

However, when you went though this process and asked us to vote on these 
new training initiatives, you never stated that you were a ISC(2) 
official trainer, which was quite a surprise to me when I saw this 
advertisement (see below) on the NYC OWASP lists.

So Fabio, please. If you are going to continue to push training 
initiatives at OWASP, it's imperative you state your conflict of 
interest as a "official certified instructor for ISC(2)" and keep away 
from votes of that nature.

Thank you.
- Jim
