Chapters Workshop

2013 Chapters Workshop to be held at the Hotel Scandic in Hamburg on Tuesday evening, August 20th from 6:30 to 9:30 pm Wednesday afternoon, August 21st from 4:00 to 7:00 pm.

The chapter workshop will be a great learning opportunity for chapter leaders that have much experience as well as those who are new to their positions, or event looking to become a chapter leader in the future. In a style similar to the workshops held in the US, Latam, and AsiaPac over the past year, the Chapter Workshop at AppSec Research this year will be an interactive opportunity for lively discussion of the  guidelines and recommendations for chapter leaders as contained in the Chapter Leader’s Handbook. Additionally, we will look at what may be missing from the Chapter Leader Handbook and should be included or changed for the next version.

If you are interested in participating in either of these workshops, please register for the Conference and select the optional session “chapter leader’s workshop” as part of the registration process. Remember that conference attendance is free for current chapter and project leaders.
