Based upon legal feedback, I would suggest the Board adopt at the next meeting a motion to stop all participation, chapters, membership, and project or chapter leadership of Iranian members / participants. To make these OWASP members whole, I would suggest refunding memberships. We have 9 known Iranian members, so the cost is around $450 plus admin fees.
Proposed motion (happy to take any amendments from the Board)
"Resolved, to comply with various US sanctions on Iran, the OWASP Board directs the Foundation to revoke and refund membership dues to any Iranian members, disband any Iranian chapters, remove any Iranian project leadership, and communicate this decision with the community (and any Iranian participants). Lastly, the Board directs that the Foundation updates all relevant membership and participation policies to reject or prohibit Iranian involvement from October 20, 2020 onward until such time as sanctions are lifted."
Once an agreed text is decided, this motion will require a sponsor and second at the prep call.
