In January 2016, I was elected to the OWASP Global Board of Directors
<https://www.owasp.org/index.php/2015_Global_Board_of_Directors_Election>
and then *the board voted and appointed my primary focus to OWASP Projects.*
The purpose was to oversee its current state, improve processes and ensure
that self-assessments were enabled so everyone could plug into a
streamlined processes.   This was also one of the (3) areas that I promised
to focus on
<https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-XKLer1o9Igc6bn7QLwOBoR1IxUDUAR-bfoPAyDXljM/edit#gid=0>
so
was very much inline with my personal goals.

*We have come to a very important milestone(s) and OWASP needs your input*

*UPDATE #1 OWASP PROJECTS*
We have a rough consensus workflow document that has been worked on as a
group and ready for YOUR comments focused on projects

*Action requested: * Click, Review, Insert --> Comment using googledocs
where needed
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ncNTj6C7QlImxn_4LwgePt8eMRU7ZVLcbWFBZGfwmek/edit?usp=sharing

With so many active participants and points of view the best way to gather
rough consensus is face to face at OWASP AppSec events.  If you are headed
to AppSecEU or AppSecUSA please *plan to attend the OWASP Summit or
sessions related to operational tasks*.  But regardless if you attending we
need your input on the FINAL survey that will shape the future or OWASP
Projects (results will be posted publicly of course)

*Action requested: Click, Answer Survey on Projects, See results*
Survey:   http://goo.gl/forms/z5dbucmwVSmC0niE2


*UPDATE #2 HELP WANTED*
 Update the OWASP Foundation is conducting its final round of interviews
for those that have applied to *Senior Project Coordinator Role*.  In
summary this role will be a senior position at OWASP to lead and be
responsible for Projects full-time without conflict.  Some would call it a
CTO like role others would call it the person in charge of management of
technology at OWASP and its projects, regardless of what you call it, this
role is critically important to future of OWASP Foundation as a technical
organization.  The roles requires leadership, technical know how and a
understanding of a global community.  We expect this process to be
completed this week and announcement coming soon.   OWASP is also in the
final phase of hiring a *Global Community Advocate/Manager, *so there are
many NEW and EXCITING things coming that are inline with our strategic goals
<https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Strategic_Goals> and documented here
<https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Board>.


*UPDATE #3 - OWASP WEBSITE*
Are you looking forward to the OWASP website getting a BIG FACELIFT and
relaunch by AppSecUSA 2016 stay up top date with what is happening with
that internal project:
