Wikimedia Polska decided to professionalise, hiring two PR employees and a GLAM coordinator in 2014. How to hire? Where to advertise? Insiders or outsiders? How to share duties between paid personnel and volunteers, which is the case in our social media activity? How to build a team otherwise than spending serious money on professional coaching? Duty definitions, reporting lines, crisis situations, responsibilities.

Preliminary preparation (if necessary)


Expected outcomes
A brainstorm on building a more professional structure.
