Any chance the Compliance Committee can review the new charter for the Compliance Committee?

In order to have the same open conversations we have done for global events, but for the chapters. I would recommend the following:
> An initial conversation internally with the foundation on the existing challenges and to document them
> Present the challenges to the community, discuss potential solutions in two/three meetings (AMER/EMEA/APAC time zone friendly calls).
> Document the community feedback and a draft motion for the board to discuss openly in the August Board meeting.

> OWASP Foundation Strategy: I have taken a look at the strategy Karen proposed (See Link), having discussed it with Karen during AppSec EU we are both saying the somethings which is good. The only point I would make is that it looks too high level like  mission/vision statements. Strategic plans would identify clear items on what to execute on while business plan includes how to execute what has been agreed on. Given that we are in July, for 2018 we know the tactical issues that need to be worked on so I would recommend we focus on 2019.
