September 19, 2017 Motion: Clarification/modification of change approved in the August 9th Board Meeting to handle minor payables. Josh Sokol motions, Matt Konda seconds

Modification: The original proposal removed the board approval from specific types of reimbursements and payables. However, the intent of the change (streamlining payments) was blocked by the need for board members (Chairman or Treasurer) to "release" the funds from the US bank account. The proposed modification would allow for the release of funds from the US bank for any of the specific reimbursement categories below. As we are currently doing, the details of all payables will be sent to the board during the bi-monthly payment batches so the board is apprised of all payables regardless of the categories below.

May 15, 2017 Motion

1. Allow the organisers of the Summit to spend up to $50k USD using funds allocated from the original $150k seed allocation to fund OWASP staff attendance and other activities as set set out in emails to the Board and in the Summit Budget

2. Cost to OWASP - up to $50k USD. Organisers will continue to work with OWASP staff to ensure that sponsorships and income is booked through the Foundation, as the event will likely make a loss. The Board requests the Summit organizers to minimise spending on necessary items and aim for break even, to ensure as minimal a loss as possible. However, the Board should be under no illusions that the event will break even, and will likely make a loss of up to $50k.

3. Debrief. Once all bills are paid and certainly before AppSec USA, the Board must have a one hour debrief with OWASP's Event Manager and the Summit organisers to determine if OWASP will ever do such an event again, what changes need to be made (regional / global, location, timing, funding, marketing, media, etc), objectives hit, and lessons learned.

To be considered as "attended", the board member must attend at least 90% of the meeting, starting at the published scheduled time until the published end time or the meeting is adjourned (whichever is earlier). Attendance is tabulated by the Executive Director or delegate within seven days after every scheduled meeting for the purpose of determining if the 75% attendance requirement has been met, and the tabulation is based upon the entire calendar year. … Josh Sokol motioned, Michael Coates seconds
