OWASP recognized the extraordinary contribution of our most active leaders by engaging them to lead seven committees that report progress to the OWASP Board of Directors.Each democratically established committee will focus on a key function or geographic region, such as OWASP projects, conferences, local chapters, membership and industry outreach. Local Chapters, Project Leaders, questions about hosting a conference or starting a chapter should contact the appropriate committee for assistance, guidance or to suggest best practice. **Note that in a perfect world we would have your best regional representative on each committee from your country as a delegate.
