On the last day of WikiConference North America 2016, the organizing team announced the creation of a permanent group that will plan future WikiConference North America events. The scope of the group is to coordinate the planning and hosting of WikiConference North America in future years. Membership in Wikimedia North America User Group is open to all people interested in supporting the mission of the group. People from WMF affiliate user groups and other active Wikimedians in North America are invited to join. Outreach will occur across North America in order to attract members with diverse interests and skills.
