Dear OWASP Community,

We are pleased to announce that the *2015 Global BoD Call for Candidates is
now OPEN*!  You may submit your candidacy here
<http://www.tfaforms.com/371459>.  There are 4 seats available for this
election. For the complete election timeline, board responsibilities,
eligibility requirements, and other election details please refer to our 2015
Election page
<https://www.owasp.org/index.php/2015_Global_Board_of_Directors_Election>.

*Some Key Updates & Improvements for this years election process:*

   - Similar to last year, we will announce all verified candidates once
   the Call for Candidates closes.  This process generates more candidates and
   minimizes any "popularity contests".  More candidates = more choices for
   you. *Candidates that wish to announce their candidacy themselves MAY DO
   SO at any time*.


   - An email will be sent to the entire community prior to
   the paid membership deadline (Sept 30) asking them to check the Membership
   Directory
   <https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1F3edYsGaXoI9u7nbjsFJp4mjSduw-GWKuqEnvIzT3mE/edit#gid=0>
    to be sure they are listed as a current individual member.  If they
   believe they are a current paid individual member, but their name does not
   appear in the Membership Directory, they will be asked to contact us
   immediately.  Please feel free to check the directory now and contact me if
   you believe you should be listed as an Individual Member and are not.


   - Unsubscribed emails to voting list - without an @owasp.org email address
   the voting system is unable to identify who has chosen to unsubscribe from
   receiving these emails which contain a link to the ballot. To be sure all
   registered voters receive their ballots, they will be sent an email from
   OWASP letting them know they should have received a ballot.  If they did
   not receive a ballot, they will be asked to contact us immediately. Every
   time the voting system sends an email with the link to the ballot and email
   from OWASP will follow.


   - A "Special Edition" connector will be published August 7 that will
   include the candidates names, "why me", profile picture and bio.


*Honorary Membership Update*

   - Honorary Membership will be open for a total of *30 days* only,
   starting June 1 and closing June 30.  Please refer to the Honorary
   Membership section
   <https://www.owasp.org/index.php/2015_Global_Board_of_Directors_Election#Honorary_Membership>
on
   the election page for more information. If you miss the opportunity to
   submit your honorary membership form, you will still have time to purchase
   an individual membership.


   - All individuals who have a current honorary membership will receive 3
   targeted emails regarding this renewal period in addition to the system
   generated renewal reminders that will also be sent.


We are looking forward to a successful election process. If you have
any questions or if I can be of any assistance to you, please let me know.

Kindest Regards,
