Subject: New Funding Rules and What They Mean For Chapters and Projects
To: "Owasp-Leaders at Lists.Owasp" <owasp-leaders at lists.owasp.org>

The Global Board has voted on several proposals affecting funding rules for
chapters and projects. A summary of the voting record
 is available on the wiki. The rule changes that may affect your activities
are as follows:

   - Chapters and projects with more than a $5000 allocation as of October
   1 are required to submit a budget for 2016 by December 1. Affected leaders
   have already been notified.

   - All chapter accounts with less than $500 will be brought to $500 on
   Jan 1 as long as they have two active leaders.

   - Similarly, a $500 starting budget will be applied for projects newly
   reaching Lab Status. Projects newly reaching Flagship Status with an
   account balance less than $1000 will be brought to $1000. Both Lab and
   Flagship status projects will need to have at least two active leaders at
   that time.

Over the past week, Executive Director Paul Ritchie has reached out to
leaders who have more than $5000 in their budgets and held a series of
Go2Meeting sessions for Q&A. We will do a second series for those with
allocations under $500. Any leader is welcome to join these calls.

We will review the original purpose & objective, then I'll talk about the
tools & Timeline. I'm happy to take any and all questions.
