Global Connections Committee -

First and foremost, I wanted to thank you for your participation,energy and
advice as members of the Global Connections Committee.  I know that there
has been some concern and skepticism

As you all know, the committee structure is being retired but we hope that
you will still be involved in the OWASP Community, contributing to press/PR
inquires, marketing strategy, outreach or other community initiatives that
interest you.  The goal of this transition is to motivate and encourage
even MORE input into initiatives that interest volunteers without those
individuals having to commit to monthly committee meetings or a structure
that often required more than individuals were able to keep up with.  In
the 5 or so months since we launched the Global Initiatives, almost 300
volunteers have signed up to help with one of the many volunteer job
postings related to Conferences, Projects, Chapters, Industry, Membership,
Education, and Connections.  We hope that if you haven't already signed up
to help with one of these opportunities - you will consider getting onboard!

*Connections Committee Legacy Initiatives:*
Please visit the Global Initiative Wiki
the most comprehensive listing of volunteer initiatives and information,
including forms to collect your new ideas for the community.

We have set up a couple initiatives related to the focus areas of the
Connections Committee that we hope will give you a place to start: get
involved with the internationalization of the OWASP Podcast, or the Global
Marketing Strategy.

Learn more about the Social Media and Communications

Are there other initiatives that relate to conference activity that you
would like to be involved in?  Send me an email or fill out the "Start your
own initiative" form <http://www.tfaforms.com/262386>.

*Ongoing Communication:*
The OWASP Staff hosts* webinars on each the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each
month*.  This is an opportunity for you to learn more about what is going
on in the OWASP community and discuss any concerns or questions that you
may have about initiatives or other OWASP topics.  We hope that this will
be a forum similar to the monthly committee meetings, but opening up
participation to a wider range of participants.  Information on the
Webinars can be found on the Global Initiative Wiki
as well as the OWASP Connector (email newsletter).

The* OWASP Connector *is another opportunity for you to keep up with what
is going on with the OWASP community (as well as share your news).  The
Connector goes out to OWASP-All (all subscribers to all OWASP mailman
lists) every 2 weeks.  Previous OWASP Connectors can be viewed on the OWASP
Blog <http://owasp.blogspot.com/>.  If you have information you would like
included in the Connector, please submit it to one of the OWASP Staff
Members or through the Contact Us form<http://owasp4.owasp.org/contactus.html>

Again, I want to thank you for your contributions up to this point and
encourage you volunteer to help with one of our Global Initiatives, join a
Global Initiative call, and submit information for the Connector.
