WORKING SESSION SPECIFICS
Objectives

You´ve already started a local Chapter and know the Chapter rules "by heart". However, you most certainly have questions about growing, financing and "local" vs. "board" decision-making processes... The aim of the Workshop is to identify existing material, prepare some ideas and compile a "Chapter Best Practices Guideline" together after the Summit. Typical challenges are:

  • Money: Where can I get funds from for growing my chapter - e.g. marketing efforts, organisational costs, etc... e.g. OWASP membership fees of local members/portions of it to be credited to the local chapter
  • "Local" decisions: What can the local chapter decide upon e.g. "local PR messages (non English), (local) projects (perhaps as a start of international projects) - using professional help for setting up conferences etc.
  • covering costs for "reasonable" translation efforts..
  • Creating a local "OWASP Foundation" non-profit organisation vs. working as part of the global "OWASP Foundation"
  • Best practices building "local boards" etc.
