We plan to start with a 1.5 hour session run by experienced leaders (panel) on how to run a successful chapter. The second part of the workshop will be a roundtable discussion on regional issues and challenges, with a goal of working together to create solutions.

  • Best practices of Chapter organization

Funding to Attend Workshop

If you need financial assistance to attend the Chapter Leader Workshop at any of these events, please submit a request to Josh Sokol and Sarah Baso.

Deadlines for submissions are as follows:

  • AppSec APAC - Sydney, Australia - March 1, 2012
  • AppSec Research - Athens, Greece - May 15, 2012
  • AppSec North America - Austin, Texas, USA - September 1, 2012
  • AppSec LATAM - Buenos Aires, Argentina - September 15, 2012


Funding for your attendance to the workshop should be worked out in the following order.

  1. Ask your employer to fund your trip to the conference.
  2. Utilize your chapter funds.
  3. Ask the chapter committee for funding assistance.


While we wish we could fund every chapter leader, due to the limited amount of budget allocated for this event, we may not be able to fund 100% to all the requests. Priority of sponsorships will be given to those not covered by a sponsorship to attend a workshop in 2011. Additionally, we are looking for new or struggling chapter leaders who need assistance kick starting their chapter.

After the deadline for applications has passed, the Global Chapters Committee will make funding decision in a fair and transparent manner. When you apply for funding, please let us know why we should sponsor you. While we prefer that chapter leaders use their own chapter's funds before requesting a sponsorship, this is not a requirement for application. If your chapter has fund but will not be using them to sponsor your attendance, please include why you will not be using the funds for this purpose (i.e. what are the other plans for those funds?).
