Subject: [Wikimediaindia-l] Invitation to join Chapter as Member by 23 June 2011 to participate in EC elections during AGM

Hi Wikimedians,

The Chapter has a statutory requirement that we have our first Annual
General Body meeting before the end of September 2011. We plan on
holding this, in Bangalore, on 24 Sep 2011. (Note: We had earlier
mentioned the date as 17 Sep 2011 but this was changed based on
unforeseen changes in the schedules of EC members and to give more
time for members to join in.)

Filling vacancies in the EC will be one major item on the agenda of
AGM. That said, only people who have become members at least three
months prior to the date of the AGM are eligible to stand and to vote.
Please remember that there is allowance for those members not in
Bangalore to vote as well. What we will do in the next 2 weeks is to
begin a draft nomination process and send it for your feedback and

Hence we urge you to  join Wikimedia Chapter by 23 June 2011, if you
have not yet applied for membership. Please spread this message with
your fellow wikimedians and encourage them to apply for membership
immediately.  The Individual membership form  along
with either Cheque/DD payable at par at Bangalore should be received
by 23 June 2011 at Chapter's office.

If you are using online transfer, please send a scanned copy of your
membership form before 23 June 2011 to along
with your online payment details and ensure that your physical
membership form reaches chapter
office before 30 June 2011.

We are really looking forward to an active and strong interest in the
Chapter from the Community.

President, Wikimedia Chapter
