6.2: Inactive Chapters

Add: Every effort will be made to reach out to the chapter leader before a chapter is marked inactive. Chapter leaders will be given seven days to respond before the chapter is marked inactive.

Add: If a chapter appears to be inactive, or in danger of becoming inactive, and the chapter leader is unresponsive or unwilling to accept support, please report it to us via the contact form so that we can follow up (link). If you feel the current leadership is not performing up to OWASP standards or have other concerns about chapter leadership, refer to section 5.6 Disputes (link) for resolution procedures. Confidentiality will be maintained.

Should we include more details on the process of leadership changes if a chapter is inactive, or appears inactive? We have received a number or requests recently to "restart a chapter" where the chapter is meeting minimal requirements, has leadership in place but perhaps hasn't met in a several months or has a quiet or inactive mailing list. Stronger language would be something like: "A request to restart a chapter will not be considered unless the chapter is officially marked inactive. We encourage members who are concerned about chapter inactivity to reach out to chapter leaders first and offer to help before contacting the global foundation to replace an existing leader."
