Update on the bylaw survey and sneak peek at the AMS


Andrew van der Stock, June 7, 2022

We will need to hold a member vote on the new bylaws, and for that reason, we are announcing Town Halls for June 28, with the vote likely to start on July 1, or at the latest in concert with the next Board Election starting August 15.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Survey. I am pleased to announce that the following Members have won a ticket to a Global AppSec of their choosing:

  • Marianne Busch
  • Amit Dubey
  • David Ochel

We are making progress on both the bylaws and the association management platform. You can also have a early sneak peek at our new AMS and the draft bylaws.

For more, please read on.
