Hello,

I am not able to access referenced PDFs right now, assuming it's
authoritative enough. I hope it's not a prank, specially considering its
name...

[Wikimedia-l] Amical Wikimedia feedback to Strategy WG recommendations

2019-09-18 Thread Toni Hermoso Pulido

Dear fellow Wikimedians,

On 7 September 2019 Amical Wikimedia organised a community open meet-up 
(https://ca.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viquiprojecte:Trobada_d'Estrat%C3%A8gia_2019) 
to discuss the Working Group recommendations at that time for the 
current Wikimedia 2030 strategy process.


Outcome was also delivered to Strategy liaisons and every comment was 
appended to their respective discussion pages several days ago. In any 
case, for the sake of transparency and for helping other affiliates and 
whole-community participants to share and discuss their points of view 
with us, we also gathered all them in the page below:


https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Amical_Wikimedia/Strategy_Meetup_2019

We look forward to reading the upcoming updates from Strategy Working 
Groups!

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Introducing our newest chapter, Wikimedia Colombia

2019-08-01 Thread Toni Hermoso Pulido

¡Enhorabuena y mucha suerte en esta nueva etapa!

Congrats and good luck in this new stage of your organization!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce that the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees
has approved the recognition of Wikimedia Colombia [1] as a Wikimedia
chapter.

Over the past five years, Wikimedia Colombia has successfully planned and
executed a significant portfolio of innovative and effective programs,
attracting new contributors, forming partnerships with local institutions,
promoting the Wikimedia movement throughout the Republic of Colombia, and
demonstrating a substantial record of programmatic impact.

It is our hope that recognition as a Wikimedia chapter will empower the
Wikimedia Colombia community to continue fostering the Wikimedia movement
in Colombia and enable them to more effectively engage with government
entities and other partners.  We additionally hope that Wikimedia Colombia
will prove to be a source of inspiration and support for emerging Wikimedia
communities in the surrounding geographic areas, furthering affiliate
development across northern South America and Central America.

I want to thank everyone who has been involved with setting up the new
chapter, and recognize their commitment and patience over the past two
years as we've worked through the chapter recognition process.  Please join
me in congratulating the entire Wikimedia Colombia team for their
accomplishment!
