I need to politely bow out of todays committee meeting, but would love
to get a summary of what you discussed.
I'll be back next week!
> Back on the conversation of working with commercial conferences, here
> are my ideas:-
> * OWASP does not sponsor or endorse any commercial conferences.
> Therefore, no language such as "supported/endorsed/sponsored by"
> is expected to be used. "In association with OWASP" may be a
> possibility if there is significant involvement/cobranding with
> a particular conference?
> * OWASP Chapter leaders for relevant geographies would be
> encouraged to post notifications of upcoming conferences/call
> for papers to their mailing lists. In return, the conference
> would offer discounts for OWASP members
> * Local/regional OWASP chapter leaders would be provided with
> conference flyers/information to hand out at chapter meetings at
> their discretion
> * Do we want to have the conferences provide us a list afterwards
> of who signed up as an OWASP member and cross reference? While I
> don't think we should hassle people if they aren't members, I
> certainly think a gentle nudge ("you got $100 off for signing up
> as an OWASP member, how about you join?") is not out of order
> * If we want to co-brand a conference, this would be decided at
> the global committee/board level. The conference would be
> required to put the OWASP logo on communications sent out, give
> us a page on the conference website, and in return we would put
> a mention somewhere on the main OWASP site and a link to the
> conference (I don't see this happening that often)
> At the Event
> * OWASP would be listed in conference collateral handed out, and
> the OWASP logo displayed on any screens etc that are present
> * OWASP would have a small exhibition area/booth to be staffed by
> local OWASP volunteers and/or a speaking slot
> What the conference gets:
> * Cross promotion within the OWASP community, at the discretion of
> the local chapter leaders who will have final say about whether
> this information goes to their mailing lists or whether
> literature is handed out at a meeting
> * Promotion on the main OWASP site
> How does that sound to everyone?
