  • Fund ring fencing

Discuss how we ensure that all of our strategic goals are properly funded, and ensure that the Foundation doesn't need to borrow when we have funds on hand. Chapters have 71% of OWASP's funds ring fenced. Let's discuss how we deliver all of OWASP's strategic goals, and improve our admin cost overhead ratio.

  • On Demand Training (pre-reading material link above)

At OWASP we are frequently receiving requests from companies looking for training related to application security. This is an area of expertise that plenty of individuals in our Community could fulfil. This growing demand for training is aligned with OWASP Strategic Goals and will become a much needed revenue stream for the Foundation that is not conference driven. Discuss revised proposal for OWASP to deliver/organise trainings.
