The 49th London Wikimeet will take place on Sunday 11th September:
We're hoping that the finalist candidates for the position of Wikimedia UK's chief
exec will be able to attend this wikimeet, although this is still to be confirmed. This
will follow from the first stage of interviews on 1-2 September and the second (and final)
set of interviews on 9th September. We'll be making the final decision on who to
appoint to the position a few days after the wikimeet - and your views of the candidates
at the wikimeet will be particularly important in making this decision.
In order to enable non-London wikimedians to attend this wikimeet and meet the candidates,
WMUK is offering to cover travel costs to get to the wikimeet for up to 6 non-London
wikimedians. To apply to have your travel costs covered, please send me an email by the
9th September, giving a brief rationale for why we should support your attendance
(focusing on the presence of the future chief exec and questions you would like to ask
them, the development of future wikimeets, or similar), and an estimation of your travel
costs. Please note that we can't support attendance without prior approval by email.
