   the idea of a chapter grew and evolved to the moment when, the decision
  was
   taken to start officially the chapter creation process.
  
   This process took longer than usual, due to many reasons, among those
 the
   change in the chapter approval process by the WMF Board last year.
   Nevertheless, after months of intensive discussion and interaction
  between
   all parties involved, a recommendation from the AffCom was sent to the
  WMF
   regarding Wikimedia Belgium. And here we are :-)

Congratulations Belgium. Douze points.

On behalf of the Board of Wikimedia Nederland, best wishes! We're looking
forward to cooperation and collaboration in the future. Wikimedia Nederland
is prepared to support Wikimedia Belgium in the founding process and
thereafter. However, you're out on your own to gather the required number
of people in one place to sign the founding papers.

[Wikimedia-l] Recognition of Wikimedia Belgium as a Wikimedia chapter by the WMF Board

Dear all,

It is an honour for me to announce that during Wikimania, the WMF 
resolved [1] to recognise Wikimedia Belgium as a Wikimedia chapter. The 
resolution was made public a few days ago.


The first discussions towards the establishment of a Belgian chapter 
started many years ago, with the local community doing projects related 
to freedom of knowledge since then, like organisation of WLM Belgium  
Luxembourg in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Along with these and other

the decision was taken to start officially the chapter creation process.


This process took longer than usual, due to many reasons, among those 
the change in the chapter approval process by the WMF Board last year. 
Nevertheless, after months of intensive discussion and interaction 
between all parties involved, a recommendation from the AffCom was sent 
to the WMF regarding Wikimedia Belgium. And here we are :-)

 Thanks all!

 The next step will be the actual founding. In two days we already have a
 meeting to talk about it.

 Anyone interested in the founding, you are welcome to sign up at

looked at the Founding page on be.wikimedia.org and didn't see an answer to
