[Owasp-leaders] Requesting OWASP funds & Getting Feedback

Hi Azzeddine:

I wanted to follow up on your comment below about funding from the
Foundation for your proposed @DEVOXX event in Morocco.

For all Chapter leaders, the process to submit a request and get it
approved is very simple. Fabio sent the link around earlier, and here it is
again,
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Funding

In fact, Azzeddine has been using this to great advantage for his Chapter.
We have already approved Azzeddine requests for Speaker expenses in May for
$400 and again in July in the amount of $1250 total for travel to the
Project Summit at AppSec USA.

The funding rules do have some 'upper limits'.  One Chapter, or one
individual can receive up to $2,000 per year.

Specific to the DEVOXX-Morocco event which I think is now scheduled in
November 2015, we are happy to review a specific request for funding
support.   We can support up to $500 for the event as a co-marketing
effort, or we can support Speaker expenses up to $500 per speaker.

So, Azzeddine, when we traded a bunch of emails back in June, you were
still organizing the event.  If your plans are firm, please submit a new
request for funding with specifics and we will review & approve per the
normal policy and guidelines.

Best regards, Paul Ritchie

to Jim, owasp-leaders
Just to complete I paid 2000 $ USD from my own resources to have an OWASP
Chapter Morocco boot @DEVOXX Maroc 2015.* I wrote different email to OWASP
Global Chapter for a sponsorship and I didn't receive any commitment about
this request.*

I have only 8 $USD in my chapter budget so in theory I have no possibility
to organize any events with this amount. I will continue to use my own
resources, my contacts, etc.
