This year there was much Building, Breaking and Defending at DEF CON 23,
OWASP missed a opportunity to raise visibility for our mission.

Watch this summary: http://bloom.bg/1T1VnmV

Next year as part of the outreach efforts I am going to personally fix that
with a OWASP contest and "vendor booth" http://defconvendors.com if you
want to help out with that effort ping me off list and we can start the
budgeting, collaboration and work efforts.

** Do you think we should be at <insert conference name> or <insert your
idea that is better use of time/ money> DO IT too start here:

Remember OWASP has always been and will always be a DO-ACRACY; in other
words, if you want it, then you do to it or make it happen.  although we
have 2500+/- voting members and make claim to over 45k people on mailing
lists participants.  You are the "we" and we can only be successful if you
make that happen for yourself.

Looking forward to discussion about this CORE concept  in
depth at OWASP APPSECUSA (www.appsecusa.org) at the leaders sessions that
are being planned by Community Manager Noreen and Michael Volenteer Board
Member and conference chair.

Need funding for your plane, hotel, meals, etc to goto APPSECUSA ... We
need a representative from each chapter and project to attend
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Donation_Scoreboard SPEND IT!

No funds in your bucket... Then use this
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Funding to get started. Did you know
that APPSECUSA is FREE to ALL chapter and project leaders? This important
fact is by design, you build OWASP and this is the big event to bring our
core community together to change the world, make your plans NOW!
