Hello Lane,

The proposed criteria will apply to new organizations. However, we should all help all affiliates to operate at higher standards, and we're willing and happy to assist with anything affiliates need to grow :-)

Hello,

Do these criteria apply to existing groups? Maybe I misunderstand, but from
this proposal it sounds like new groups will be held to significantly
higher standards than any currently recognized organizations. Is that the
case?

yours,

Dear all,

On behalf of the Affiliations Committee, I would like to present some
changes to the current chapter and thematic organisation criteria, which we
will begin piloting as we officially reopen applications for chapter and
thematic organization status. Until now, the criteria had not clearly
defined what constitutes sufficient programmatic activity to justify
chapter or thematic organisation status. To address this issue, we have set
out three new criteria:

    1. Diversity of Activities: Chapters and thematic organisations are
    expected to plan and conduct a variety of different programs and events; to
    balance online and offline projects; to strive for continuous activity; and
    to conduct programs and events at least once every two months.
    2. Planning and Evaluation: Chapters and thematic organisations are
    expected to set specific goals and targets for programs, projects, and
    events before executing them; to measure the results of programs, projects,
    and events against those targets; and to report on those results to the
    Wikimedia Foundation and the wider Wikimedia movement.
    3. External Partnerships: Chapters and thematic organisations are
    expected to engage in programmatic partnerships with external groups and
    organizations (for example, cultural, academic, or government institutions,
    and so on) to promote the Wikimedia movement and to add and improve content
    on Wikimedia projects.

In order to officially reopen the chapter and thematic organization
recognition process, the Board of Trustees has instructed the Affiliations
Committee to provisionally use these three new criteria for all new
applicants. In addition, potential chapters and thematic organisations will
continue to be assessed against the existing legal, governance, and
viability criteria; more details, including the benefits and limitations of
these affiliation models, are available on Meta.[1] [2]

Please note that the use of these three new criteria is a pilot; there
will be opportunities to share feedback about the criteria, as well as
other ways to help define the chapter and thematic organisation affiliate
models, during the upcoming strategy consultation. The Affiliations
Committee and the Board of Trustees will continue to evaluate results and
feedback during the initial pilot period and consider potential revisions
to the criteria before they are finalized.

Thank you,
M.
