> Today, we are kicking off cycle 1 which is running until 15 April.

> 
> As an organized Group, you can invite all your stakeholders to join
> your conversation: Board and staff members, members, external partners
> and allies as well as members of your communities. Track A is closely
> connected to Track B (Individual Contributors)[5], as many organized
> Groups have close bonds with their local or thematic communities. We
> encourage Track A and Track B coordinators to sync on their plans.

> Your conversations can happen on- and offline. To host a conversation,
> please read the discussion guide[6] that provides material to prepare,
> conduct and document each conversation in each format. Before you and
> your peers enter the conversation, please make yourself familiar with
> the briefing[7] which provides a high-level overview of what we know
> about the future and about our movement today.
> 
> I also look forward to seeing many of you at the Wikimedia Conference
> in Berlin where we will discuss our future, generate thematic
> statements, identify keywords and create thematic clusters of our
> ideas. The rough outline of the program will be adjusted in the coming
> days.[8]

> Let’s make this happen! Please reach out to me with any question or
