I am finalizing a program for a set of Chapter Leader Workshops at
AppSecUSA and would love to get some feedback. We currently have a room
during the AM sessions on Thursday and all day between keynotes on Friday.

I would like to do four hour-long sessions on:

   - People and Capital: who can help you (meet OWASP staff), how to
   recruit members and volunteers, what you can do with funding and how to
   know what you have.

   - Jumpstarting a Chapter - The Basics: Overview of the updated chapter
   leader handbook, meeting formats, collaboration tools, social media, etc.

   - Hosting a Conference or Training event: how to host a money-making
   event for your chapter, event formats, working with sponsors and speakers.

   - OWASP Wiki Edit-a-thon/Hackathon: Intro to the owasp.org wiki and
   tools you can use to develop your chapter wiki page and integrate external

I am most excited about the Edit-a-thon. There has been some discussion on
this list about how to better curate content on the wiki. I'd also like to
explore APIs that can help integrate some of the internal and external
content. Meetup has an API that should allow leaders to autopost upcoming
events to their wiki page or to the mailing lists. How would you feel about
having access to tools that help you integrate external resources into the
wiki? What can we build to help us run chapters better?

Are the above sessions something you would be interested in attending
(project and chapter leaders welcome)? What time would you want to attend?
I'm taking all ideas in consideration and your ideas as leaders are the
most important. We want these sessions to be very interactive, tip sharing
from seasoned and new chapter leaders.
