===Recurrent meetings Italian Switzerland===
The Italian community is organizing a recurrent meeting every two weeks in 
bookstore Libri al Centro, Via Vegezzi 4, Lugano. The time and the starting 
date will be communicated to the Italian speaking members by email. 
Anyhow, if you're interested in attending these meetings, you can write to our 
Community Liaison Ilario Valdelli on ilario.valde...@wikimedia.ch.

====Labisalps and history of Alps project====
The project is still uploading the first three journals of the International 
Society for Alpine History in Wikisource:

* https://it.wikisource.org/wiki/Indice:Labi_1996.djvu
* https://it.wikisource.org/wiki/Index:Labi_1997.djvu
* https://it.wikisource.org/wiki/Index:Labi_1998.djvu

The community of Wikisource is working to proofread them. In the meantime we 
received the material of Domenico Rudatis (1898 - 1994), one of the first 
alpinists, to be uploaded in Commons and Wikisource.

====Wikipedian in Residence in Federal Archives====
As many other Wikimedians and Wikipedians, also Micha Rieser (our Wikipedian in 
Residence in the Federal Archive ) participated at OKCon in Geneva in 
September. He gave much appreciated insights into the Wikipedia World. We 
strongly recommend to have a look at the presentation ''How GLAM can support 
Wikipedian'' [https://www.dropbox.com/s/dnq8gf88uqfr9ck/OKCon.pptx] he gave. 

====Wiki Loves Monuments====
Wiki loves Monuments was going on throughout September. The Swiss contest was 
ending successfully with having around 4.000 uploaded images and 188 
The winners will be announced during the award-ceremony on November 30 in the 
National Library in Bern. Don't miss it, because a fantastic frame program is 
waiting for you: A guided tour through the archives of the Swiss National 
Library, Workshops and a photo exhibition. To get more information, see the WLM 
website http://wikilovesmonuments.ch/de.

=== Community: Scholarships for WikiCon ===
Wikimedia CH is granting scholarships to WMCH members to attend the Wikicon in 
Karlsruhe. As usually, WMCH offers to reimburse the costs for entry-fee, 
travel- and accommodation-costs. We're looking forward to get your application 
on i...@wikimedia.ch.

===Working Groups===
See their reports: https://members.wikimedia.ch/Working_groups

For everybody who's especially interested in GLAMs: Beat Estermann gave an 
about the potential and possibilities that arise if GLAM institutions like 
Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums cooperate with Wikimedia.

Furthermore we are glad to announce that Charles Andres, our new Chief 
Scientific Officer, started to work on September 1 and already took care of the 
annual FDC Application. Charles will not only oversee GLAM activities but also 
be the responsible person for for the development of WMCH's education program. 
Feel free to contact him and talk with him or ask him about his new role - he's 
looking forward to get in touch with you.

As Charles Andres is our new CSO, Patrick Kenel is the new president (ad
