Affiliations Committee advice[edit]

Whereas:

  1. A group of volunteers has requested to be recognized as a Wikimedia Chapter under the name Wikimedia Ísland;
  2. The proposed bylaws have been reviewed by the Affiliations Committee,
  3. The group of participants in the candidate chapter seems viable;
  4. It is the opinion of the Affiliations Committee that the group meets the requirements for Wikimedia Chapter status.

Therefore be it

resolved that the Affiliations Committee hereby advises that the Board of Trustees recognize Wikimedia Ísland upon founding, and grant it interim permission to use the Wikimedia trademarks pending the signing of a Chapters Agreement.

Proposed Board of Trustees resolution[edit]

In accordance with the recommendation of the Affiliations Committee, confirming that the structure and bylaws of Wikimedia Ísland comply with the current requirements and guidelines for future Wikimedia chapters, it is hereby resolved that:

The Board of Trustees recognizes Wikimedia Ísland as a Wikimedia chapter, provided that Wikimedia Ísland accepts and complies with a Wikimedia Chapter Agreement. The Board instructs the Executive Director to offer a Wikimedia Chapter Agreement to Wikimedia Ísland. This agreement will govern the chapter's recognition and provide the chapter with specific permission to use the Wikimedia trademarks.

Pending execution of a Wikimedia Chapter Agreement, Wikimedia Ísland is entitled to request a trademark permission for its activity, pursuant to the Wikimedia Trademark Policy.
