The OWASP chapters program helps to foster local discussion of application security around the world. Our local chapters are free and open to anyone. Sales activities are strongly prohibited, although vendors who can provide useful application security information are welcome. Generally, chapters meet monthly or quarterly, and have presentations and discussion of key application security topics. Many of the presentations are available for everyone to use.

Starting a Chapter
If you would like to start a chapter, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and confirm that you:
- have read the rules
- can commit to organizing monthly or bi-monthly meetings
- can find a stable location for meetings
- can find great speakers
- will publicize the chapter and recruit new members
- will keep the chapter non-commercial
You don't need to be that expert in application security, just motivated to run a chapter. There's lots of help available from other chapter leaders. So get your local community moving and start a local OWASP chapter!
Move those Presenters!
To support local chapter meetings and (web application) security conferences we started a travel-support program for OWASP presenters.
