Dear Chapter Leaders,


OWASP has been listening to you and we are proud to announce that we will
be testing the new MeetUp Pro service for the next 3 months. Therefore we
are asking for chapters interested in participating in the beta to please
respond by filling out this form <https://goo.gl/forms/SZVvlsdgjql212qE2>.


MeetUp Pro will provide an umbrella under which the chapter groups would be
gathered. This means that all of our chapters would be uniformly branded
and advertised on our master homepage
<http://www.meetup.com/pro/docker/>.  From
the chapters’ point of view, the meetup would function the same as before
with the only changes being that the leaders are listed as “local leaders”
and only the official OWASP account would have the ability to start and
eliminate chapters.


There are a lot of benefits for chapters of going pro, not only will your
meetups be more searchable, but the cost of the service, currently born
from your chapter budgets, will be absorbed by the foundation budget.  A
significant “silent” benefit is that the API should allow us to mirror the
information on the MeetUp page on the Chapter wikis thereby eliminating a
large amount of work that we currently ask our leaders to do, but do not
enforce.


After MeetUp Pro is out of Beta, All chapters will once again be required
to keep their wiki pages up to date. Our goal is to remove the onerous time
sink of doing this.

If you are interested in doing this for your chapter please fill out this
form: https://goo.gl/forms/SZVvlsdgjql212qE2
