Wandering by a room at the West Wing of the LA Convention Center, I saw David Endler, chair of the VoIPSA board.

"Come in," said David.

It was a short, but professional meeting attended by a dozen or more consultants and technologists. In addition to over 100 member organizations and 3,500 names on the uselist, the alliance reported the completion of the first every VoIP Security Taxonomy, as the first project of the group.

Significantly, this triggered discussion around the market feedback? next steps? budget? and of course, membership classes and fees. I argued for an 'educational' category of membership with reduced fees, that the large company fee was roughly 1/2 what it ought to be, and that the small company fee should be set at say, 100 employees maximum for $900/year. The board will have to make their recommendation and get it to a vote of the membership one would think in the next few months.

BTW, VOIPSA.org is a 501(c)3 corporation.
