I know the confederated approach may surely make more sense for the local communities, but I think an established regional subject would help uproot the Foundation from a single country it relies too much on.

Hi Ricordisamoa,

There are multiple chapters, user groups and thematic organizations that are active in the US and have a degree of separation from WMF. The US affiliates are cooperative with each other, and the affiliate leaders communicate with each other fairly frequently. May I ask what benefits you think would come from having a consolidated US chapter? We've talked about this casually among ourselves but so far we seem to be satisfied with a confederation of smaller affiliates instead of a single national affiliate.

Thanks!

Pine

    The WMF will become a truly global organization when a Wikimedia
    US chapter is founded ;-)

        Hi Garfield,

        I'm asking this on Wikimedia-l because a number of Wikimedians
        have noted
        the expensiveness of the San Francisco area including its high
        cost of
        living for staff, employer competition for engineering talent, and
        associated high salaries for WMF employees.

        I see on
        
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/foundation/8/8a/RFP_for_Real_Estate_Services.pdf
        that WMF is considering relocating its offices when its
        current main office
        lease expires.

        Questions:

        What happens to the remodel expenses that WMF is paying for at
        its current
        location? If WMF vacates the premesis, will it be compensated
        for the
        remodel by the building owner?

        I hope that WMF is contemplating fully exiting the San
        Francisco market
        area in order to economize, get better value for our donors'
        funds, have
        less competition for talent, and lower costs of living for
        staff. Is this
        being considered?

        Thanks very much,

        Pine
