I'd also like to see a session on keeping a chapter alive and active.
Keeping our members engaged and participating.

My two cents.

> 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
>    services.
> 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.
> Thanks.
