Wikimedia Chapters Association/Governance

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki


The scope of this, yet to be ratified by Council, working committee is to establish a resolution that covers:

  • Chapter peer review
    • Any report will be assessment rather than audit
  • A process for assessment on request
  • Best practice / Case studies
  • Governance related communications
  • Maturity Model / Checklists
    • A maturity / Quality model needs to be developed that is not growth oriented or dependent on size
  • WCA complaints process
    • Assessment or peer review will always be at the request of the chapter
