Dear friends,

The last weeks, Fae and I had some conversations about the WCA and the
following steps. While he concentrated on the committees, I wrote to
the chapters and explained about the procedure to join. We would like
to issue an official report soon, but other duties in life have
prevented us from doing so. It would be good to have good reports on a
regular basis, summarizing what is going on.

But we don't want to wait longer with the announcement that Wikimedia
Ukraine joined the WCA. It is the first chapter to become a part of
our new INGO since the meeting in Washington. Head of Board Yevhen
Buket and Executive Director Yuri Perohanych send us a signed letter
(in PDF form) in which they confirmed that WMUA wants to join and that
Andriy Bondarenko is appointed as WCA Council Member.

WMUA did so on August 2nd, and on August 15th WCA received and
accepted it. We are very proud to see that the WCA attracts the
chapters and would like to see more of them knocking at the door.

Welcome to WMUA, and more about the WCA follows soon.

Kind regards

Ziko van Dijk
Deputy Chair of the WCA Council
