Hi Josh,

I know there is no ruling in the OWASP guildlines for board members saying
they must attend any conference.
Nevertheless, in my opinion, there is a responsibility for the board
members to touch base / keep in sync with the community. In my opinion, how
are you doing this without seeing them in person at one of the biggest
Next to that, other than what you are required to do, there is the point of
felt support if board members attending a OWASP event (of the void of that
if no).

Hope that clarifies my question,
