Chapters Committee/Resolutions/Approval of Wikimedia South-Africa - March 2011
Chapters Committee Advice
Wikimedia South Africa has requested to be recognized as a chapter, the Bylaws have been reviewed by the Chapters Committee, and the group of participants in the candidate chapter seems viable:
The Chapters Committee hereby advises that the Board of Trustees recognize Wikimedia South Africa upon founding, and grant it interim permission to use the Wikimedia trademarks pending the signing of a Chapters Agreement.
Proposed Board Resolution
In accordance with the recommendation of the Chapters Committee, confirming that the structure and bylaws of Wikimedia South Africa comply with the current requirements and guidelines for future chapters, it is hereby resolved that:
The Board of Trustees provisionally recognizes Wikimedia South Africa as a Wikimedia Chapter and grants it permission to use the Wikimedia trademarks, pending signature of a Chapters Agreement. This provisional recognition and permission will expire in one year unless a Chapters Agreement is signed, at which point recognition and trademark use will be governed by the terms of the Agreement for as long as it is in force. The provisional period may be extended at the discretion of the Foundation's Executive Director.
