Since being elected in October, the Wikipedia & Education User Group
been quietly working, setting the infrastructure for engaging and working
more closely with our members and the broader community, i.e. anyone else
interested in advancing global efforts around Wikimedia projects and
To this end, we will be starting to host monthly meetings (Yay!), where our
members and other interested parties could share experiences, challenges
and opportunities, while strengthening our global network.
Our first meeting will be held *next Monday, Dec. 17, between 17:00 - 18:30
UTC*. While for various reasons, we've had to set up a specific time for
this meeting, our next meetings will be scheduled using doodle to maximize
the number of participants.
*The agenda for the meeting includes:*
* Introduction of members attending
* Overview of what the board has been doing so far
* Introducing working groups
* Intro to the Annual Plan
We will be using "Meet" which allows for up to 50 participants to join, so
hopefully will not have issues of people unable to join, and we will do our
best to record the meeting, so if you can't join us, you'll still be able
to catch up.
*Here is a link to the meeting - meet.google.com/xzw-mqpa-pmn
Please spread the word wide and join us!
We have lots to discuss and we're excited to include all of you!
