[Owasp-leaders] OWASP 2010 Membership Drive

Several organizations I've worked for have set the goal "everyone with
interest X should become a member". I've always said the goal should be
"everyone with interest X should *want* *to* become a member". That is, the
focus should be on being an attractive community, not hunting members.

I recommended a colleague to become OWASP member two years ago. He did. But
he never saw the exclusive member kit that was promised. What ever happened
to that?

Anyway, I think the only effective way is to use the chapters. That's we're
most people feel they get something tangible from OWASP (Internet stuff is
always free). We need our chapter leaders to explain to chapter members why
OWASP needs their financial support.

If I could easily figure out how many of my chapter members are paying OWASP
members I could push for it. But I don't think we have any connection
between membership and being on a chapter list, do we?

   Regards, John
