**The two conferences left for the year are AppSec LATAM, and AppSec USA.
**The issue we are having is that many of the primary activities a Project Leader takes part in, happen outside of the wiki and Salesforce.
+
**I have reached out to two project leaders in the Latin American region, and asked them if they would speak at the conference.
**Moreover, project leaders do not have access to the information in Salesforce about their project.
+
**Both leaders agreed to speak at the conference.  
**This means that project leaders cannot update, add, or delete information about their projects.
+
**I have been helping them with their travel, accommodation, and conference logistics planning.  
**The end result is that I have to make duplicate data lists, one in Salesforce and one in Google Docs where Leaders can have access to it.
+
**Thank you to Michael Hidalgo and Rafael Gil Larios for representing OWASP Projects at AppSec LATAM.
**Kate is looking into several applications that can help eliminate this duplication, and help with our workflow.
+
**AppSec USA planning for projects is going very well.

**I only have one project leader that hasn't booked his travel yet, and only one project leader that hasn't confirmed his talk time slot.
