Link to 2011 Committee Attendance Records




  • Updates from the July board meeting July Meeting Minutes in particular:
    • Update on local conference policy

  • Discussion and vote on Chapters Policies for handling local/regional events.

  • Equipment and Fixed Assets - Any objections to the following process for local chapters requesting reimbursement for equipment, projectors, laptops, video equipment, etc:
    These items are considered fixed assets, and should be tracked by the Foundation. Even though the essentially belong to the chapter, by allocating and tracking them at the Foundation level, the accountability of the expense rests at the foundation level. The local chapter would then “donate” the cost of the equipment back to the Foundation. Essentially, the goal is to process requests for reimbursement on capital expenses by allocating the purchase as a fixed asset cost to the foundation, since local chapters do not fill out tax returns. The local chapter retains possession of the equipment.

As proposed by Tom Brennan: Recently OWASP leaders were asked to sign NDA's for several onsite meetings, education sessions and collaboration efforts. Some have experienced a similar concern at chapter meetings from attending individuals. I suggest adoption of: "Chatham House Rule" to enable open discussions that fits our model. It can be incorporated into the disclaimers for those giving talks at chapters, operational/bylaws of local chapters, mailing list/forum terms and referenced as how OWASP operates enabling Open exchange of information in our community. "When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed."

  • Chapter leader workshops at ApppSec USA and LATAM - Brasil.

  • Chapter Handbook updates - proposed working session (separate from Chapter workshop) for actual drafting of document. Open to leaders in attendance and requested of leaders that we sponsor to attend. Goal to have new handbook finished by Nov. 1.
