Hi everyone! I'm very happy to announce that the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees has approved the recognition of Wikimedia Colombia  as a Wikimedia chapter.
Over the past five years, Wikimedia Colombia has successfully planned and executed a significant portfolio of innovative and effective programs, attracting new contributors, forming partnerships with local institutions, promoting the Wikimedia movement throughout the Republic of Colombia, and demonstrating a substantial record of programmatic impact. It is our hope that recognition as a Wikimedia chapter will empower the Wikimedia Colombia community to continue fostering the Wikimedia movement in Colombia and enable them to more effectively engage with government entities and other partners. We additionally hope that Wikimedia Colombia will prove to be a source of inspiration and support for emerging Wikimedia communities in the surrounding geographic areas, furthering affiliate development across northern South America and Central America. I want to thank everyone who has been involved with setting up the new chapter, and recognize their commitment and patience over the past two years as we've worked through the chapter recognition process. Please join me in congratulating the entire Wikimedia Colombia team for their accomplishment!
