NEW GLOBAL COMMITTEE STRUCTURE
OWASP recognized the extraordinary contribution of our most active leaders by engaging them to lead a set of six new committees that report 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.
|OWASP GLOBAL COMMITTEES|

| 100% Volunteer Committee Members run OWASP Foundation. The goal is to have min. 7 persons on each committee that represents an OWASP region in the world acting as a voice.
Board Rep., rotates every every quarter to provide assistance across all groups.

...they all use web applications...some even protect human life as well as PII and credit cards :)
- Identify issues or "efforts" like the Browser Working Group and others, the group should invite Industry CIO/CISO's (perhaps as a "value" of corporate membership support) to want to publicly collaborate on a document of industry needs that can add value to having the support of OWASP Foundation for the greater good of secure software, a internet based global economic platform and humanitarian needs worldwide
- Enable the support required at the local level to accomplish the overall mission and goals of the association
- Make connections between the OWASP Community and with outside world
