[Owasp-board] AppSecUSA 2016 - Discussion

Board,

I'd like to suggest the following for discussion and information gathering.

*Motion to move full responsibility of planning and execution of the
AppSecUSA 2016 conference to the OWASP Foundation.*


*Current Situation*
- Open call for hosts conducted and conference is awarded to the most
qualified submission
- No submissions for AppSecUSA were submitted during first or second call
(took place December and January 2014/2015)
- A third call was recently announced by Laura just a few weeks ago.

*Reality*
- Conference planning needs 18 months. Planning within 12 months is
possible, but much more difficult
- If we don't make a decision to invest this to the full time resources of
the foundation, we won't have AppSecUSA 2016
- This would lead to a significant impact on foundation resources

Opening for discussion. Thanks for your thoughts.
