Hi there,

I was reviewing the bylaws and came across the following section:

SECTION 3.02 Number, Tenure, and Qualifications. The number of directors of the Foundation shall be no less than five and no more than seven. Each director shall hold office for two years unless duly removed. An individual is limited to 4 consecutive 2 year terms effective January 1, 2014. Each director must be elected as prescribed in the election policy and procedure. https://docs.google.com/a/owasp.org/document/d/1A16CEWCebTC_vadzSsaGFsuvBD94HhkbgHKBZr6sh II/edit

I have a couple of comments here:

- The google docs file is non existent >> I think we need to put the content of the google doc somewhere in the wiki (once we found it). Any pointers?

- The election terms needs to be reviewed in my opinion.. at present it reads "An individual is limited to 4 consecutive 2 year terms” >> I think we need to change the statement to the following “An individual (member?) is limited to be elected no more than three terms in any 7 years period”. By doing so we reinforce the message that you need to be an OWASP member to run for the Board and also are limiting the scope in amount of years which is quite currently long in my opinion.

Please let me know your thoughts.
