== Chapter Proposal/Plan 2009 ==
 
The following details summarizes each of the proposed deliverables and objectives for 2009. Information here will be updated by the committee as it becomes available.

= 2011 Goals and Initiatives =
  
== Global Chapter Survey 2009 ==
+
*Provide chapters with useful resources to help them succeed.
The Global Chapter survey will be performed in the first quarter of 2009. The objective of this survey is to communicate abroad with all the chapter leaders on topics of concern and where they need help. The survey will also go into depth on "what works" and what doesn't work so we can share knowledge between all the chapter leaders.
+
*Help individuals in getting more from OWASP chapters.  
 +
*Ensure as many chapters as possible are healthy and active.
  
The survey will probably be completed through survey monkey or similar online format, were we can also make the results available to everyone. The survey should take a chapter leader no longer then 15-20 minutes to complete. Questions will be prepared and reviewed by Mid March 2009, with the survey being released in Late march. It is expected that all chapter leaders will have approximately 7 days to complete and return.

=== Chapter Handbook Revision ===
  
== Chapter Handbook ==
+
The Chapter Handbook revision was completed and approved by the committee at the end of 2011 and is posted to the wiki: [[Chapter_Leader_Handbook|here]]. Initiatives are currently underway to translate the handbook to Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, and Russian.  If you are interested in helping with any of these or another language, please [http://sl.owasp.org/contactus Contact Us].
The Chapter handbook will become the most useful tool that any chapter leader can have. There are a number of existing documents, references and OWASP material available to chapter leaders, however this handbook will become the primary reference point for all chapters. The following items will be included in this handbook
 
  
- How to Start and Grow your local chapter
 
  
- How to fix a broken chapter (restart)
+
= Committee Tasks =
  
- The structure of a Chapter (Leaders, Committee Members etc)
+
Everyone is busy. To make it possible for busy people to contribute, the Global Chapter Committee subdivides its goals into micro-tasks easily digestible in an hour or two by volunteers.

- Local Chapter Branding
 
 
 
For the current version online see [[Chapter_Leader_Handbook]] however this will be updated with the new chapter handbook once a draft is available.
 
 
 
== Chapter Marketing ==
 
The Chapter marketing plan will discuss what marketing requirements are needed in each chapter and formulate a plan to help grow each local chapter. It is believed alot of content for this will come from the Chapter survey.
 
 
 
The Chapter marketing plan will be a living document and will need to be updated regularly.
 
 
 
First draft of the plan to be completed by the end of Q2 2009.
 
 
 
 
 
== How to make a successful Chapter ==
 
This is the first of a series of Whitepapers available to Chapters and the OWASP community. The whitepaper will discuss what has been successful in other chapters, and will give insight into some of the larger chapters and why they are so big.
 
 
 
This whitepaper should provide the "Top Ten" ideas for the growth of a chapter, and should help to guide chapter leaders in growing their local chapter membership.
 
 
 
 
 
== Chapter Agreements ==
 
Chapter Agreements already exist (i.e the speaker agreement), however the goal of this task/program is to formalize these agreements and ensure they are readily available and accessible to all chapter leaders. This task will see the existing agreements be reviewed and updated by the committee before being re-published to the OWASP leader community.
