Whereas, the 2023 Affiliate Strategy (Recognition) uncovered a number of insights from affiliates, other community members, AffCom members, and Foundation staff; and

Whereas, AffCom wishes to provide additional guidance to affiliates regarding what it means to be an active and healthy Wikimedia organization;

Now, therefore, it is:

  • Diverse, skilled, and accountable leadership
  • Community connection
  • Internal (membership) engagement
