Leaders,

Could you share your chapter experiences with cooperation with
security-related events (conferences, etc.)?
I can not find any written rules in Chapter Handbook, Code of ethics
or "brand usage rules".

Our chapter is asked about partnership during commercial conferences
and workshops. Usually they want us to spread the word about the event
through our channels (mailing list, twitter, facebook, etc.) and use
OWASP logo at event page (as partner). In return they are giving us:
- minimum: logo at conference page/materials/venue,
- maximum: possibility to talk at the conference about OWASP projects
and discounts for OWASP members.
Until this time, decision was made each time individually, taking into
consideration how much we (as OWASP) can benefit from the event. But I
(as a chapter leader) would feel much more comfortable if I could
point conference organizers to clear and written rules which kind of
events we can support and
what are the conditions.

Sorry, if this was discussed in the past, but I really can't find any
information.

Examples of events:
