Call for Participation

 

As you are aware, the OWASP Foundation has recently created several
volunteer committees.  These committees will be given the opportunity to
influence the direction of the foundation and the future of OWASP.

 

Everyone is invited to apply for membership to a particular committee.  This
is your opportunity to have a voice in OWASP procedures as well as guide our
future.  The OWASP Foundation is a volunteer organization.  Our efforts are
directed by industry professionals who are passionate about the future of
application security.  Recognizing that each member has a full time job, we
all depend on each other to provide leadership and direction for OWASP.

The Global Committee structure gives each OWASP member the opportunity to
introduce their local successes to a much larger community of professionals.
Volunteers will be able to expand their local network, direct the future of
OWASP, as well as promote our mission:  to make application security

so that people and organizations can make informed decisions about
application security risks.

The following Global Committees have been created and are recruiting
international members.  You can see the list of current members on each
committee page.

your application and forward the endorsements via email to the board member
directing each committee. Your completed application will then be reviewed
and voted on by the deadline set in Portugal for ratification of this new

Board meeting. The term of this role is for 24 months and then each year at
the OWASP Summit these "seats" will be up for renewal.  You must be able to
commit to approximately 40 hours each month.
