General Information

As part of AppSec Latin America 2011, on Wednesday, October 5,2011 at 13:30h-16:30h, the Global Chapter Committee is organizing a chapter leader workshop for all the chapter leaders that attend the conference. Please note that this Workshop will take place on the day before the Conference starts.

Discussion topics include:

  • How to support inactive chapters within Latin America?
  • What Governance model is required for OWASP chapters?
  • How can the Global Chapters Committee facilitate the Latin American chapters?

Funding to Attend Workshop

If you need financial assistance to attend the Chapter Leader Workshop at AppSec Latin America, please submit a request to Tin Zaw and Sarah Baso by August 22, 2011.

Funding for your attendance to the workshop should be worked out in the following order.

  1. Ask your employer to fund your trip to AppSec USA conference.
  2. Utilize your chapter funds.
  3. Ask the chapter committee for funding assistance.

While we wish we could fund every chapter leader, due to the limited amount of budget allocated for this event, we may not be able to fund 100% to all the requests. After August 22, we will make funding decision in a fair and transparent manner. When you apply for funding, please highlight your past contributions to OWASP and your future plans for the local chapter and OWASP.
