Hi Yohann,

I am confused by your mail.

Not able to understand whether

a. you are trying to defend (/give their perspective of) EC or you are blaming/bashing EC
b. talking about current office bearers and/or talking about previous office bearers who left abruptly.
c. What is the paid employees role? Even when he is in Banglore, why things are not happening in time.
d. why your mails get blocked?

many more things if I translate the read-between-the-lines.

Dear Community

I regret to inform you that Wikimedia India has not been give periodic updates regarding the activities of the chapter. This is in spite of the fact that the last year, we have been doing many activities & making great strides in reaching out to the community.Apart from that,Wikimedia India has also not been open about the obstacles which currently our organization is facing. 

1.) No Monthly Reports were being circulated by the Office Bearer’s at Wikimedia India. Major updates regarding to different activities were given to the community, but a periodic update was not given to the community The Executive Committee (EC) along with the Program Director recognize the negligence in this regard. An assurance regarding the same has been provided in this regard. On the first Monday of every month, we shall be submitting our monthly report to the community.

2.) Inability to Conduct Annual General Meeting for 2014-2015: The Office Bearers have already been apologetic in this regard. An assurance has been provided that efforts are being undertaken to process it as soon as possible.

3.) Current Financial obstacle faced by the Chapter: We are in Process of renewing our FCRA license , but due to this,the Chapter at present is facing financial challenges.

To tackle these problems ,we are taking guidance from senior community members & founding members of the chapter. We hope to resolve these issues soon & continue with all the good work we have been doing so far.
