Tom,

It's more than just your desire to shift OWASP to a trade association, I just personally think you serve the foundation better as a chapter lead than as a board member.

And Tom, 2016 is my last year as a board member and I will not be running again. I think 4 years is enough as a board member and at the end of 2016 when my term ends, the board will need fresh eyes and new leadership. 

You're served on the board a long time, Tom, and again I feel we need to give new folks a chance to lead in this regard. Democracy works better when leadership is rotated out frequently, in my opinion.
