OWASP Foundation 2015 Strategic Goals

Our leadership team has been working on the OWASP Strategic Goals for 2015 and we would love to have your input. OWASP is Community supported and volunteer-driven so it is important that your input is included in our planning.
Our draft strategic goals are outlined in a brief survey. We encourage you to give us your thoughts on how valuable each goal statement is to you and the community. You may also suggest new goals.
Lets get started! Please follow this link and take our survey:

Updated Profit Sharing Model for Events

2015 is going to be a great year to host an event! Did you know that as of 2015, the profit share for all non-AppSec local and events is now 10/90 with no cap? That means when you host a chapter event, chapters can keep 90% of profits regardless of the total revenue. This change was approved by the Board during the September meeting.
Events are a great way to raise funds for your chapter. Let us know how we can help. Visit the Chapter Leader Handbook and the How to Host a Conference page for ideas.

OWASP Project Summit

Project Summit

This is where application security experts meet to discuss plans, projects and solutions for the future of application security. The Summit is not a conference - there are no talks or training seminars - this is an opportunity to do actual work to further the field of application security. We are holding the summit as part of our AppSec EU 2015 conference, but it is a separate activity from the conference itself. Participants will collaborate to produce tangible progress towards influencing standards, establishing roadmaps, and setting the tone for OWASP and application security for the coming years. The Summit will consist of Summit Working Sessions with a variety of topics set by our community. Participants are free to attend any working session, but we encourage everyone to select working sessions for topics where they have the most to contribute. Anyone can attend the Summit! OWASP community members, application security experts, industry players, and developers are all welcome at the Summit. If you would like to receive a personalized invitation for yourself or another person, contact Johanna Curiel.
