PROPOSED Corporate Membership Benefits
Currently there are a variety of membership levels with varying sets of benefits. Generally those benefits can be summarized as promotional, discounts, and voting. In an effort to simplify the selling process, the proposal is to offer only one membership level with two prices: (1) $25,000 per year for organizations with over $100M of annual revenue and (2) $5,000 per year for organizations with under $100M of annual revenue.
- Recognition on website as Corporate Member
- Individual Memberships for employees of the Member
- Up to 10 Memberships for organizations with less than $100M in annual revenue
- Up to 100 Memberships for organizations with more than $100M in annual revenue
- 20% Discount on OWASP Conference Passes
- One Corporate vote per Election Cycle
- Up to 20% of Corporate Membership Dues can be attributed to a Project, Initiative, or Chapter
It should be noted that the Foundation may from time-to-time extend additional promotional benefits to Corporate Members, but above is our minimal commitment.
