== Global Chapter Survey 2009 ==
 
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.
 
 
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.
 
 
 
== [[:Category:Chapter_Handbook|Chapter Handbook (Draft)]] ==
 
The Chapter handbook is 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
 
 
; [[Chapter Handbook: Chapter's life cycle|Chapter's life cycle]]
 
* Starting and restarting a chapter
 
* Chapter's structure
 
** Roles
 
** Appointments and elections
 
* Conflict of interest
 
** Proper disclosure guidelines
 
* Minimum activity requirements
 
 
; [[Chapter Handbook: Operations|Operations]]
 
* Rules for running a chapter
 
* Managing money
 
* Managing the local chapter list
 
** Disclosure of member details
 
* CPE credits
 
 
; [[Chapter Handbook: Conferences and meetings|Conferences and meetings]]
 
* Speakers
 
* Sponsorship
 
* OWASP on the move
 
 
; [[Chapter Handbook: Marketing and growing a chapter|Marketing and growing a chapter]]
 
* Branding
 
* Cooperating with other organizations
 
* Social networks
 
* Media
 
* Metrics for success
 
 
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.
