Re: [Wikimedia-l] Recognition of two new user groups

2014-01-30 Thread Bence Damokos
Hi Laura,

The Brasilian community has a long history with many twists. At one time
there was a proposed chapter that the  Board has recognized but was never
founded; and the Affiliations Committee has recommended the user group
route for the community in their current aspiration to form a chapter. I am
really glad that the community has accepted the recognition and opened the
way for a real Brasilian chapter to be founded in the near-future.

Best regards,
Bence

 Did aff-comm initially recommend to the Wikimedia Foundation board that
 Wikimedia Brazil be approved as a chapter? Or did aff-comm talk them into
 becoming a usergroup before any approval?

Parabens Wikimedia Community User Group Brasil!

Congratulations New England Wikimedians!

 Dear Community Members,

 It is with great pleasure that I can announce that the Affiliations
 Committee has recognized two new user groups in the movement in December.

 The Wikimedia Community User Group Brasil and New England Wikimedians are
 two active groups of Wikimedians on the American continents with a history
 of projects and great plans for the future. You can learn more about their
 work on their respective websites at:
 https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Brasil_user_group
 https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/New_England_Wikimedians

 The resolutions are published at
 https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Affiliations_Committee/Resolutions, and
 the
 groups are in the process or have already completed the execution of the
 user group agreement, the final step in the process towards recognition.

 Please give a warm welcome to these groups and provide them encouragement
 for their future.

 Best regards,
 Bence Damokos
