Kate's Review

IT Issues:

1. What to do about wiki/forums/mailing lists? (need answers asap)

  • Liferay (java based cms) -- possible hosted env.
  • Drupal -- can handle member/conference registrations
  • Ultimate BBS with mailing list integration
  • What are we using Saleforce for?

2. Future of IT support

  • Ad server instructions are done.
  • Wiki upgrade process done, but needs continued updating
  • Mailing list needs to move to OWASP hardware (waiting on #1 above)


Vote Required:

1. Are we going to have a financial review for 2008. The cost is 5K. Suggestion is to skip the annual review and have full review every 3 years.

2. What to do with invoices over 1 year old. Send to collections? Write off? Current balance is $2900

3. Do we charge Local chapters processing fees for the 60/40 split. Currently we do not. Proposal is to pass along the transaction fees too the chapter for paypal processing.

4. Should we invest $2500 to support an OWASP meet up at Blackhat

5. GPC - Send 'Individual Committee Member' online form [1]

Board Votes Postponed from June

1. Delegate 100K for SOC (was 90k). Funds to cover project team costs.

OUTCOME:

Board postpones vote until updated information on the budget (month reconciliations up to date).

2. Board approval needed for updated SoC model.

OUTCOME:

Board will postpone vote pending feedback from the leaders' list.
