Agenda[edit]

To be discussed include:

  • What proportion of affiliates would like to use Wikipedia in their name?

The two times are:

  • 03:00 UTC – 2020-09-20 (Asia-Pacific friendly time)
  • 19:00 UTC – 2020-09-20 (Europe-Africa-Americas friendly time)

Summary of meeting[edit]

If you've been on these calls before, in what ways have the calls been useful? What kinds of topics or areas might this group address in the future? What other functions might SWAN be able to fill or perform going forward?
Engagement with global movement ++++++ Finding ways of letting other affiliates get to know each other better +++++ A way to keep in contact with WMF staff and/or people, to give and receive feedback about stuff going on +++++
Spending time and supporting people we don’t commonly see ++++++ Community policies, general overview of what’s happening with WMF projects ++++ Support for affiliates in crisis regions ++++
Maintaining connection for those isolated +++++ Documenting all affiliate programs by volunteers / improving Meta coverage +++ Global concerns for Wikimedians around the world ++++
This “collaborative writing break” is a good idea to switch up the dynamic & have us each participate +++++ Sharing knowledge about the structures of experienced affiliates for the new and inexperienced ones to learn and ask questions +++ Central hub for announcements, deadlines, etc ++++
Learning more about the Strategy transition and implementation process ++++ If name change for WMF, how will that affect Affiliates +++ Sharing staff resources for joint initiatives ++++
General awareness about what’s going on in the movement ++++ It would be nice if it was clear why some issue is being brought up to discussion. It is not always clear why our input is needed +++ Existing chapters assisting user groups and other affiliates to progress to next level +++

03:00 UTC participants[edit]
