It is that time of the year again! Our team is beginning to plan a new set of pre-conference workshops to develop movement leader skills for programs evaluation and design for Wikimedia Conference. We will dedicate half a day to introduction topics on Wednesday (May 13) in the pre-conference agenda. Our team will also offer applied workshops on your selected toolkit topics during open Thursday (May 14).

If you are planning to attend Wikimedia Conference 2015, we need your insights!

We want to know which workshops and session offerings are most desired, and who among conference attendees are available to come to the pre-conference. In order to help us design the best agenda for these days, please fill out our brief survey to share your availability to participate and which topics are of most interest.
Importantly, the Wikimedia Foundation is able to cover the additional cost of the 1 or 2 extra nights stay for up to 30 participants to join us. Please let us know your interest right away by completing the survey now through February 6:
