Delegate Selection during Patiala Meetup 6[edit]

Main article: Meetup/Patiala/6

One of the agenda of the meetup was to select an appropriate candidate for Wikimedia Conference 2016 out of the 4 nominated candidates.

  • 8 participants supported Parveer Grewal as the official delegate from Punjabi Wikimedians. He has been helping in organizing Punjabi Wikipedia Article Writing Competition, Punjabi Wikipedia 13th Anniversary Edit-a-thon and Punjabi Wiki Workshop, Chandigarh. He has also played an important role in getting Punjabi Wikimedians recognized as an official Wikimedia affiliate.
  • One of the nominated candidate gave his opinion that Punjabi Wikimedians should focus on Non-Patiala candidates and select them to represent Punjabi Wikimedians at Wikimedia Conference and 2 participants endorsed him as well. While the other participants believed that the Parveer Grewal is still a better candidate if we look at the guidelines to select the appropriate candidate.
  • Other members of Punjabi Wikimedians are invited to give their opinions as well.

I would like to tell you guys again that Ideal delegates are those who are

  • involved in the decision making processes of the organization,
  • or evaluation specialists,
  • or program leaders.
