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?
> Pre-Event
>     * 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?
