In the light of Asaf's news about Wikimedia Kenya, it seems timely to
highlight one of the positive tasks I agreed to at the last Wikimedia
Chapters Association coordination meeting. This was to start chapter
peer reviews. In a couple of weeks I plan to put out a call for
involvement and set up a meta page to get this going.

As well as using practical (and cheap to do using virtual meetings)
and non-bureaucratic peer reviews, better to understand governance and
share best practice for Wikimedia Chapters, it would be great to
extend this as a means of learning about best practices for Wikimedia
User Groups. If the WCA can adapt to helping provide better engagement
with User Groups and other Wikimedia organizations, this will be a
positive step for the movement; though it may require quite a bit of
patient help from friendly Wikimedia volunteers :-)

If anyone who is in a Chapter or User Group (or a prospective User
Group), would like to get involved at the start in receiving or
delivering peer reviews, please drop me a note and I'll ensure you get
an early notice when I kick off this, interesting but tricky, bit of
international teamwork. Expect me to be depending on you for help.
