  1. Advisory Committee for Wikimedia DC
    • Cindy I spoke with Peter Meyer, president of Wikimedia DC. He has a request: " We invite a Stakeholder board member or event organizer – someone with meaningful experience in the movement – to join this listed Advisory Committee. We who are doing the project will be reporting in to the Advisory Committee, getting advice, and Advisory Committee members may be asked afterward if we did a good/complete job. The project per se is to gather information from (a) other affiliates, (b) other nonprofits, and (c) North American Wikimedians to develop ideas and maybe consensus about how these affiliates might work together efficiently or reshape themselves. It’s interesting and friendly; nothing difficult. No need to read a hundred pages to prepare or anything like that."
