OWASP Foundation monthly board meetings

OWASP Foundation holds monthly board meetings to keep the principals on track of the foundation to address items that roll-up from the Global Committees http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Global_Committee_Pages

On the next board meeting Dec 1st we will WELCOME Eoin Keary and Matt Tesauro as new members of the board. As a reminder and for transparency ("O" in OWASP = Open) here is the current agenda http://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Board_Meeting_December_1,_2009_Agenda you are always welcomed to listen in as the meetings are OPEN to the public

If you believe that there is a pressing issue in your chapter/project or collective region of the world that falls into one of the following "buckets" (Membership, Industry, Projects, Chapters, Conferences, Education) your conduit is the appropriate global committee (see webpage for contact information for each of them) they are FOCUSED and EMPOWERED to resolve or address it. Monthly the Global Committees roll up information as a verbal update/written proposal from the committee chair, some people may know this process as a a cross-functional roll up type of meeting and in addition to sometimes daily one-on-one calls, this monthly call is a 60 min "state of the union" update.

Hope this provides insight.. there have been several questions about this since the 2009 Summit that took place in Washington, DC last month.
