<div>In my last role of Board Member for FBI/Infragard New Jersey I actually worked on setting up the 501 hence i know the pain.  As we outline governance its the foundation that we have to start with then we can build in parallel with excellent technical content.

<p>Can you let me know why you need all this stuff? It's kind of a pain to gather together. I do have a couple financial summaries that I put together right before the last two US <span id="st" name="st" class="st">OWASP
