Some WMPT representatives have taken part in a couple of events, namely Iberoconf 2013 in
Mexico City, but at the expenses of WMF and/or the local chapter hosting the event.
Meanwhile, at a recent general assembly, it was decided to try to revamp WMPT. We are now
in the process of putting together a small group of people to present themselves as
candidates to the board on a future electoral general assembly.
So, any help on financial reports would be extremely helpful in the future. But, answering

Dear Wikimedia Portugal ,
I am Seyi, user Oolukoya (WMF), one of the WMF Finance Fellows. I am writing with regards
to a project, my team and I are currently working. Our project was recently announced on
Wikimedia-l; please follow the link below if you haven’t see the announcement to find out
more about the project, give your comments and feedback.
In summary, the aim of this exercise is to help Chapters, Thematic Organizations, and the
Wikimedia Foundation make financial data and statements more consistent across all
Chapters, Thematic Organizations, and the Wikimedia Foundation, to the benefit of the
whole movement. In order to get there, we will build on existing financial data sets (From
January 2013 to December 2013) and reach out to Chapters and Thematic Organizations if
further information is required. That being said, It is my pleasure and honor to work
alongside your chapter to achieve the desired outcome.
In order to minimize possible burden on your chapter, I am working to gather and process
available data from online sources. However, I will appreciate suggestions on possible
locations/recommendations on where to look for quantitative data for the year Jan-Dec
2013, preferably in English for your chapter . So far, I have looked through your
chapter’s website and page on Meta-Wiki.
Finally, I would like to thank you beforehand for your cooperation and support. If you
have any questions regarding the project itself and you can’t find the answer on our meta
page, I’ll gladly answer it. You can reach out to me at PDT time via email.
