Greetings from Wikimedia India.
In 2011, WikiConference India was held for the first time and turned out to
be a landmark event.
It was the largest Wikipedia conference in the world, ever held to date!
Last year, the Mumbai Community led the way, playing host and inviting the
rest of India to Mumbai, something that has had a match-stick impact on the
Wikimedia movement growth nationwide.
The time has come for us to now think of WikiConference India 2012. Several
communities from different parts of the country have evinced interest in
hosting the conference this year.
We would like to invite for a Bootstrap team for aiding WikiConference
It will be three member team which will also work in coordination with
Executive Committee of Wikimedia India Chapter. One of the team members
will be playing a lead role.
The role of team is to work with the chapter members and the larger
* to discuss, invite framework & process for the WikiConference 2012
* to actively consult and take feedback from the different stakeholders.
* to call for and set up jury members for the selection of the city.
* To invite and facilitate the bidding process and guidelines.
We request the volunteers who are interested to send an email expressing
your interest @ chap...@wikimedia.in as early as possible.

Wikimedia India Chapter
