*Letter from the Chairman*

Dear OWASP Community,

Welcome to the last Connector of 2018, a year not be remembered for its
smooth start.  In retrospective is has been an eventful and successful year
with many highlights, achievements and not to mention CHANGES.

We started off the year with 4 new board members; Chenxi Wong, Greg
Anderson, Sherif Mansour, and Owen Pendlebury.  The OWASP Foundation
welcomed a newly hired Executive Director.  We said good bye and good luck
to Laura Grau and Tiffany Long; left OWASP for a new opportunity.  We
welcomed back Matt Tesauro and a new staff member Lisa Jones to the team.
Let us not forget the dedicated staff of Kelly Santalucia, Dawn Aitken, and
Harold Blankenship.

At the end of the year, our Executive Director, Karen Staley resigned to
return to the entertainment industry from where she originated. We thank
Karen for her work and effort, in assisting the OWASP Foundation to
continue on the path to becoming a more mature organization.

This year's elections, and close of 2018 we have to say, goodbye and thank
you to Matt Konda and Andrew van der Stock; two highly contributing and
long-time members of the Board and say welcome to Richard Greenberg and
Gary Robinson in 2019.

Even with all the changes, we can look back on a prosperous 2018 including
two successful global AppSec conferences in London and San Jose, and
various local and regional events.

The chapter review is almost done, revealing we currently have 221 active
chapters globally. The OWASP Top 10 2017 has been released early this year,
new projects have started and several projects achieved flagship status.

We continued to gain the trust of our current and new global sponsors as
well as our growing community of 2,400+ individual and close to 60
corporate members worldwide.    OWASP has again proven to be an active and
healthy open source organization with a loyal and devoted community.

In closing, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Holidays.  Let's make
2019 a triumphant, lucrative and eventful year!  We will kick it off with
OWASP’s first Global AppSec conference to be held in Tel Aviv, May 26 to
30, 2019.
Your Chairman,

Martin Knobloch
OWASP Global Board of Directors
