> For more information about our newest Wikimedia chapter, Wikimedia Korea,
> please see the announcement on the Wikimedia Foundation website:
> I want to congratulate the new chapter and recognize their commitment,
> efforts, and time involved in moving through the chapter recognition
> process over the past year. From their work building partnerships with
> universities, to supporting and training new editors in South Korea, we
> look forward to seeing the impactful work from our community members in
> South Korea as they advance in their new affiliate role.
> As many of you know, this is our first chapter approval in several years -
> since the newest Wikimedia affiliate approval processes were put in place.
> This marks a new moment in the history of our Wikimedia movement
> affiliates. The Board appreciates the amazing work coming from these user
> groups around the world, and is inspired to see how far some of these
> groups have come in terms of their impact both on our movement and their
> local communities. Indeed, we should all be proud of the impact our
> affiliates continue to have on our projects, our vision, and the world
> around us.
