[Owasp-leaders] OWASP 2010 Membership Drive

I don't think there is anything that is already correlated, but you can
get the raw data.


Here is the list of all the OWASP members, along with their local
chapter affiliation, if any:



If you go to the admin interface for your mailing list, you can get
(albeit not very conveniently) the list of everyone who is subscribed to
the mailing list.


The big challenge at this point is that the membership roster includes
name, but not email, while the mailing list keys off of email, but
doesn't require a name.  So matching things up may not be easy.
Although, I wonder if Kate could help with that by providing a list,
including email, of all the members affiliated with a chapter.


Could be an interesting exercise to go through and one I think I'm going
to do for our chapter.


Thanks for the idea.

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?
