RE: the Chapters list, I have already been informed by Michael Peel, the list 
admin, that we should forward 5 people (presumably the Board) to be added. I 
shall send their names once we have a Board in place.

Subject: [Wikimedia Kenya] WMKE Representatives for the Wikimedia Conference    
2012 in Berlin

Hi, everyone.
I was wondering if you have at least one or two folks subscribed to the 
chapters-only mailing list (, where Harel Cain, this 
year's program manager for the Wikimedia Conference in Berlin, has been 
inviting chapters to start thinking about their representation in Berlin this 
year.  He has asked me to make sure WMKE is aware of the invitation, and I 
quote his e-mail for your consideration below.  Note that he sent it to me 
expressly for the purpose of helping it reach all the chapters that haven't 
responded yet -- neither I nor anyone else from the Foundation is subscribed to 
the chapters-only mailing list, and this is deliberately so.

You may remember that last year, your delegates in Berlin were Abbas and Limoke.
You can read all about the conference, and past years' conferences,

Subject: Re: [Chapters] **Reminder** Registration for Chapters Meeting 2012: 

Dear all,

In the eleven days since I first sent out the e-mail below, quite a few 
chapters have chosen their delegates to the Chapters Conference 2012 or at 
least an interim contact person for the chapters has signed up in

However, we still haven't received any sign of life from the following 
chapters, and our plans are for registration to end in less than two weeks' 
time, by February 5th!
So may I please remind you all to speed up the choice of your representatives 
to ChapConf12 - our time is running out. I would also like to repeat that 
Wikimedia Deutschland, our kind host, will be covering the flight and 
accommodation costs for chapters who cannot afford it themselves.

Please, if you're from one of these chapters - list yourself as an interim 
contact person. If you know how to contact anyone from those chapters and think 
they are not following the list - please forward this to them.

* Wikimedia Brazil (chapter-to-be, probably not on this list yet - can someone 
forward this to any of their people?)
* Wikimedia Canada (are they on the list?)

* Wikimedia Deutschland
* Wikimedia DC (too busy with Wikimania?)
* Wikimedia Espana
* Wikimedia France
* Wikimedia Hong Kong

* Wikimedia Indonesia (Siska, you there?)
* Wikimedia Italia
* Wikimedia Kazakhstan (chapter-to-be, probably not on this list yet - can 
someone forward this to any of their people?)

* Wikimedia Kenya (chapter-to-be, probably not on this list yet - can someone 
forward this to any of their people?)
* Wikimedia Macedonia (Kiril, you there?)
* Wikimedia Macau (are they on the list?)

* Wikimedia Mexico
* Wikimedia Norge
* Wikimedia Polska
* Wikimedia Portugal
* Wikimedia Russia

* Wikimedia Serbia
* Wikimedia Taiwan
* Wikimedia Ukraine
* Wikimedia South Africa (apparently being added to the list as we speak)

Thank you everyone!
