OWASP Chapter Leaders - 
As part of AppSec Latam 2012, a free chapter leaders workshop will be held the afternoon of Monday, Nov. 19th (the day before the conference). Details on the workshop can be found on the conference website: under the "Chapters Workshop" tab.

Sponsorship funds are also available for Latam chapter leaders who want to attend the workshop and conference. If you need financial assistance to attend the Chapter Leader Workshops please submit a request to via the Contact Us Form by September 17, 2012.
  • Priority of sponsorships will be given to those not covered by a sponsorship to attend a previous workshop. Additionally, we are looking for new or struggling chapter leaders who need assistance kick starting their chapter.
  • When you apply for funding, please let us know *why we should sponsor you*. While we prefer that chapter leaders use their own chapter's funds before requesting a sponsorship, this is not a requirement for application.
  • If your chapter has fund but will not be using them to sponsor your attendance, please include why you will not be using the funds for this purpose (i.e. what are the other plans for those funds?).
