So I made it to the summit, and so far I have this to report: help I
want to go back to bed. Also uuuuh we're apparently an affiliate and
have some say in affiliate-selected board seats?!
But seriously, the focus of this thing seems a lot more specific than
previous years, not that I'm particularly familiar with previous years
either: it's all about Strategy. Movement process. 2030 stuff. That...
discussion I maybe kind of sort of derailed a year or two ago on this
same list (sorry about that). As such, I'm wondering if anyone does have
any particular thoughts on this, or ideas as to stuff I ought to be
looking into in particular that might affect us as a group/loosely
affiliated lump of people in theoretical proximity to each other who
occasionally organise things in theoretically relevant geological locations?
Or if you actually want to read up it, it's probably this:
As for the affiliate-selected board seats thing, I'm... honestly not
really sure what the deal with that is - I've been signed up for a
mailing list about it (possibly as the selected person for this
conference? Not sure - was anyone else added to that?) but haven't been
able to find out a whole lot about what's the deal with that onwiki,
either, partly on account of being a bit distracted travelling all over
and being ill.
So, yeah, should I be representing us on that, too, does anyone know any
more about that one, and what do we make of that?!

Just wanted to remind you all that the annual report for Wikimedia-US-CO was due back on March 4 (I think)? In any case, it’d be nice to get one in before we get reminders this time!
Annual reportingly yours,

Hello fellow Coloradans!
Want to curate a room at this year's Wikimania for a day?! There is just a
few more days to put in a submission to lead (or co-lead) a space during

submissions, but not enough yet, so I'm bumping this thread to you all,
hoping that it might spark some interest!
