Dear subscribers of the chapters-reports mailing list,
this distribution mailing list is obsolete. We are using a shared,
Wikimedia-wide announcements list in its place:
The messages sent to the WikimediaAnnounce-l list include Wikimedia
Foundation announcements, as well as occasional announcements from
groups of volunteers. The rationale behind this is that we want to
communicate important messages as a collective movement.
To post a report or announcement to WikimediaAnnounce-l, please send

confusing additional e-mails. You can quickly subscribe using the

The mailman archives will not be merged at this time. The following

Anniversary Conference 2010
This is our third Anniversary Conference, an annual public outreach event we
maintained since 2007. This is year we set the event as a kick start of our
WMF-funded project, the Education Toolkits For Liberal Studies. With the
help and support from ISOC-HK and the Hong Kong Council of Social Service,
we are able to had such meeting in HRH Duke of Windsor Service Building, a
prime conference location in town. In the meeting Dr. Chitat Chan, our
chapter’s advisor, and John Chan from our partner group in the LS toolkit
project, 3 teachers group. We had clarified our goal and defined the
strategy for the project.

Education Toolkits For Liberal Studies
This is a WMF-funded project, and from the anniversary conference, our
partners and us agreed that we should involved teachers who currently
teaching the subject. So we kept on the strategic preparation for the
platform to bring the teachers together.
Preparation for annual fundraising
Preparation for this years fundraiser had started much earlier this year,
and several things are in progress:
- unlock our Paypal account by gaining charity status
- moving bank account to HSBC
- seeking gov’t approval to set up fundraising stalls in downtown streets
- preparation for selling Alpaca(Caonima) stamp in the fundraising period
(special thx to Argentine Chapter)
Wikimedia Asia Conference
Negotiated with dot Asia organization and ISOC-HK, we may facilitate an
option for Wikimedia Asia Project, that we might collocate the conference
with their APRICOT-APAN 2011. We still need a consensus from the Asian
Chapters to make the conference a reality.
4th General Assembly was held in June, 1st Council, which provides check and
balance to the directory, was elected. Councillors were inaugurated in June,
in their first assembled, when the annual plan and budget of the chapter
presented by the Directory was also approved.
