Hello Josh, so I have a couple of questions with regard to the note below.  Based on the billing it seems that Scion is handling the entire process and that any and all candidates should go through them, as I have just received the resume from the individual that we had identified and does this mean that Matt T either has to interview with Scion or is out of the running.  Just want to get a bit of clarity as to what the process is for candidates that Scion does not identify in their search.

Take care

Subject: [Owasp-board] MOTION: Bring in Scion Executive Search to Handle ED Search Process

OWASP Board,

There's been some discussion in the other thread regarding the proposal from Scion.  I am including the proposal as it contains answers to many of the questions that have been asked.  The only argument that I've really heard against this is monetary and I truly feel like we shouldn't let that stand in the way of hiring the best ED for the Foundation.  Given no internal expertise in these matters, it is my recommendation that the Board move forward with the proposal from Scion.  To that end, I have a question and a formal motion.

Question: Would we like a six-month or twelve-month placement guarantee on the hire?  The difference is an additional 3% of the annual salary.

MOTION: The Board will allocate up to $45k to hire Scion Executive Search to conduct the search, evaluation, and hiring process for the new OWASP Executive Director.

This is based on the high-range salary estimate of $135k and 33% number for the 12-month placement.  This would be billed 1/3rd upon the signing of the contract, 1/3rd 60 days later, and 1/3rd on the new ED's start date.

For the record, our ED recruitment process is stalled until we either approve or reject this motion.
