Dear OWASP Leaders,

OWASP is excited to announce that the 2017 Global Board of Directors Call
for Candidates is Now Open!

You may submit your candidacy here <https://www.tfaforms.com/4618215>.
There are 4 seats available for this election. For the complete election
timeline, board responsibilities, eligibility requirements, and other
election details please visit our 2017 Election page
<https://www.owasp.org/index.php/2017_Global_Board_of_Directors_Election>.

*Some key updates for this year's election process:*

   - Similar to years past, we will announce all verified candidates once
   the Call for Candidates closes. This process generates more candidates and
   minimizes any "popularity contests".  More candidates = more choices for
   you!  Candidates that wish to announce their candidacy themselves may do so
   at any time.


   - An email will be sent to the entire community prior to the paid
   membership deadline (Sept. 30, 2017) asking them to check the Membership
   Directory to be sure they are listed as a current individual member.
   Individuals who believe they are a current paid individual member, but
   their name does not appear in the Membership Directory, will be
asked to contact
   us <https://www.tfaforms.com/308703> immediately.  Please feel free to
   check the directory
   <https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WN07dNGBldvYC_RmTKKsrYdguSUghlLP5A7QfQa6G9M/edit?usp=sharing>
now
   and contact me if you believe you should be listed as an Individual Member
   and are not.


   - Unsubscribed emails to voting list - without an @owasp.org email address
   Simply Voting, our voting system, is unable to identify who has chosen to
   unsubscribe from receiving the emails which contain a unique link to each
   individual's ballot. To be sure all registered voters receive their
   ballots, OWASP will send an email notifying individuals that the email with
   their unique link to their ballot has been sent. If they did not receive
   their ballot, they will be asked to contact us
   <https://www.tfaforms.com/308703> immediately.


   - An email will be released in addition to social media posts on August
   7 that will include the candidates names, "why me", profile picture, and
   bio.


*Honorary Membership Update*

   - Honorary Membership is open YEAR ROUND!  Please refer to the Honorary
   Membership
   <https://www.owasp.org/index.php/2017_Global_Board_of_Directors_Election#Honorary_Membership>
section
   on the election page for more detailed information.


We are looking forward to a successful election process. If you have
any questions or if I can be of any assistance to you, please let me know.
