Results of OWASP Summer Membership Drive

A big thanks to everyone that became a new OWASP member or renewed their membership during our Summer Membership Drive! Over the course of 8 days, we accumulated 160 new members and 40 membership renewals for a total of $10,000 USD raised for OWASP. $4,000 of that will directly go to benefit the OWASP Projects Reboot.

Congratulations to our drawing winners:
(4) OWASP Global AppSec Passes
  • Reg Harnish
  • Justin Derry
  • Charles Herman
  • Brian Hill

(2) BlackHat USA 2012 Briefing Passes
  • Artair Burnett
  • Rajat Swarup

We received some really positive feedback on the community on this initiative as well:

     "Good marketing campaign!"

     " Thanks for the great promotion to remind guys like me that my membership was up for renewal. 
     I am so thankful for OWASP and how it has helped me and my organization. "

      "Love this plan. Brilliant way to drive membership."

... and last but not least, a bit of  excitement from one of the winners of a BlackHat Briefing Pass:

     " [This will be] my first ever conference and trip to Vegas...You are making a simple guys dreams come true. Thank you again." 

Again, thanks to everyone that participated by purchasing a membership or spreading word of this initiative!
