Use of an OWASP email by chapter and project leaders is a recommendation, not a requirement. See Chapter 4 of the Chapter Leaders Handbook.

Owasp.org Email Accounts
Owasp.org email accounts are provided for paid OWASP members, Chapter Leaders, and Project Leaders. If you do not have one and fall into one of these categories, submit your request to http://sl.owasp.org/contactus.

The standard format followed for email addresses is: firstname.lastname at owasp.org.

It is recommended that chapter leaders use their owasp.org email account for all OWASP related matters. There are a number of reasons for this including: a separation between your contributions for OWASP and other volunteer or paid work you may do, eliminating the appearance of conflict of interest (by using a work email address for OWASP matters), and protecting your personal privacy. The email address of chapter leaders is listed both on the chapter wiki page (a means of contact) as well as the administrator of the chapter mailing list. Using an owasp.org email address prevents your personal email address from being listed on a public site.
