Hey all, Building up on what Mugo said, I'll be coordinating projects by wmke . I'm currently working on a structure we could adopt to facilitate the needs of project leads/volunteers and will be sharing a preliminary of the same soon on this list for some feedback and refinement.
I understand that I was also tasked (during our last chapter meetup) with coming up with a program to assist new members / volunteers who join us. I'm, working on this also and hope to get some feedback once I have something concrete to report. I'll write again real soon with timelines for both. In the meantime, You are most welcomed to shoot out some pointers/suggestions you may have. cheers, Alex On 4/16/12, David Mugo <raidar...@gmail.com> wrote: > Fellow Wikipedians, > > I am humbled to take up the chairmanship of the first board of Wikimedia > Kenya.
