[Owasp-leaders] rough consensus & running code

The main thing to note here is that I think next year's budget discussions
needs to kick off with fervour much earlier than we did last year. I tried
(I really did) by talking about the 2017 budget in July, September,
October's f2f, November, December and January's board meetings. But it just
never really got much traction.

I think the problem with asking the community for input is that I received
around a $1m of ad hoc ideas, but had no formal way of tracking them, so
they sort of got lost. I will look into making a google form or similar
this time around so we can track them better. We must manage to policy, and
not to individual requests, so I will be looking at a way to bring this
together for future years so there is transparency. However, the requests
from the NY/NJ chapter alone exceeded this year's total spend by $380k. So
we can do some of it, but without growing our membership and sponsorship
opportunities, we can't do it all.

thanks,
Andrew
