2013 OWASP International Global Board of Directors Election

The OWASP Foundation Board of Directors consists of six elected volunteers.  These unpaid volunteers dedicate themselves to the organizational mission and play a pivotal role in the software security community.  OWASP conducts democratic elections of its Board Members to enable bottom-up advancement of it's mission.

OWASP bylaws specify the board must be between 5 and 7 members.  Currently the OWASP board is 6 members.  The current board voted to extend the number to 7 members.  The 2013 election will now seat 4 spots instead of 3.  The newly elected board members will begin their terms Jan 1, 2014.  At this time we'll see the board officially expand to 7 members.
