- AppSec EU -- Industry Committee hosting industry breakout sessions. Who is going from GIC? Who do we need to send invites out to? What is our game plan?
- Committee Governance: The Conferences Committee has put together a basic committee governance structure: http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Global_Conferences_Committee_Governance Can we adopt a slightly modified (to fit the GIC's initiatives) version? What changes would people like to see?
- Lucas's open letter to the Brazilian Government - Colin has provided Lucas with some feedback, but it would be great if we as a committee could vote on whether we can officially "endorse" the letter, to provide Lucas with some backing. There has been a long string of email regarding Lucas's request for feedback on the GIC mailing list... if you missed it, email me and I can forward it on.`
