I've been assembling my notes from last week's board meeting to pass 
along. The first set of items I have to report is business from the 
chapters committee. All of these resolutions have been posted on the 
foundation website.

We approved two new chapters, and there's something special about each 
of the two. Wikimedia New York City is special because it's the first 
one recognized under the new sub-national chapter guidelines. And 
Wikimedia UK is special because it's the second version of that chapter. 
For the sake of formality - and nobody does formality better than the 
British, which has been part of the difficulty - we revoked the 
recognition of the first one, which is dissolved or in the process of 
dissolving. Anyway, welcome to both of the new chapters!

Also, two resolutions relating to the chapters committee's membership 
and procedures were approved. One recognizes the current members and the 
other allows the committee to determine its own membership in the 
future. This allows them to keep their work going without waiting for 
the board to pass a resolution (the board reserves the ability to 
appoint and remove members and will still be informed of changes).
