Any further updates on the activities?

Looks like I am the only person asking questions to WMIN. Somehow, I
am getting more and more inputs and more questions from people from
the community.

Raising one such query that needs some serious answers.

It is understood that during the year, some 4-5 members of the EC went
for foreign tours for some Wikimedia related activities. There was no
consultation whatsoever with the community before going and there was
absolutely no report of any kind after they came back.

What was the purpose of their visits and what they achieved there? Who
funded for their tours?

Community would like to get answers to these questions. I will prefer
that the individual members who went abroad give their individual
briefing on the list publicly.
