Board,

Another very successful LASCON is in the books.  This year we added a free
full-day training on the OWASP Top 10 with Dan Cornell and I instructing 87
attendees.  The feedback was amazingly positive and Dan and I are already
talking about when and where to do it again.  The conference itself ran
like clockwork.  I heard wonderful things from the sponsors, speakers,
staff, and attendees with the only negative being that we didn't have
massages in the speaker room this year.  We had a "share what you learned"
session at the end and one attendee shared that it was his first LASCON and
out of all the conferences he has been to, it was by far his favorite.  He
said "You have something very special here with LASCON."  I heard a number
of other people say it was their favorite conference as well.  I think I
heard that the final registration numbers were somewhere around 370 (James,
feel free to correct me) which makes this the largest LASCON to date.  I'm
not sure the profit at this point, but I think it is a record number as
well.  This is an amazing Conference that serves our mission well and I
think we need to figure out ways to encourage more chapters to do similar
things.  Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.
