Update/change to meeting format: The Wikimedia Foundation is exploring a
revised format for the November meeting. Our intent is to share work from

* Executive Director update
* Community update
* June 2016 Inspire Campaign - Chris Schilling
* Guest speaker - Wikipedia Asian Month - Addis Wang
* Questions and discussion

If you have any questions about the new format, please feel free to reach
