[Owasp-leaders] Grant for undeserved Leaders to attend Global AppSecs?

Dear Chapter and Project Leaders,

We have had many requests from Leaders of chapters with little funds from
Africa and Asia to help fund trips to a Global AppSec.  We have never had a
Global AppSec in Africa to my knowledge, and while in 2018 we will host one
in Asia, this is not a usual occurrence.  Because our Global events are
usually so far away, it can cost much more than $500 to send a leader to a
global event.  It is quite telling that only chapters from the two
continents we do not have regular events on make this request.

As a community, do we wish to put together funds to support these leaders
attending global events?

If so, these funds would have to be sourced from Projects and Chapters to
supplement the max grant the foundation is able to give.  Is there a
Project or Chapter that specifically wants to fund this?  Do many Chapters
or Projects want to donate to a central pool?

Best,

Tiffany Long
Community Manager
