First of all, thank you for supporting OWASP! Your contributions are very
appreciated by everybody.

Unfortunately, at this time OWASP can not recognize volunteers with
certificates. OWASP has only 5 employees 2 of which are part-time. We have
well over 800 speakers per year at OWASP in our over 190 chapter meetings.
It is therefore just not possible at this time, however it maybe something
we can do in the future.

Many people add their publications and presentations to their CV's. (see
this example; https://www.aamc.org/download/62350/data/cvsample3.pdf)
Additionally, I recommend you also include your chapter leadership (
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Khartoum) in your CV. Enter it in like a
job, and treat it exactly as such. Your chapter wikipage will become
evidence of your contributions and leadership, this is visible to the
entire world, including future employers. :-)

Take a look at my chapter here:
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Royal_Holloway as an example, even better
the DC (https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Washington_DC) or Austin (
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Austin) chapters are worth looking at for
ideas as well. Upload your speaker presentation (
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Special:Upload) which requires you to be
logged into the wiki. The upload page will tell you how to link to your
file in the wiki text on your chapter page and link to your presentation on
the wiki.

If you need any further help with your chapter, please feel free to reach
out to me.

And best of luck in your job interview tomorrow Ali,
