This proposal was originally discussed and approved in spanish.



The purpose of the Task force Proposal for Wikimedia Mexico is to have a structure prior to the founding of the chapter, to perform volunteer work, and to set goals to be achieved in the short and medium term in order to create a chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation in Mexico.


In accordance with Step 2 of the Step-by-step chapter creation guide of the Wikimedia Foundation, as a group interested in working on a voluntary basis has been formed, it is now necessary to define structure and goals of the group prior to the formation of the chapter.

The intent of this proposal is to form a preliminary organization to divide tasks by time, ability, skill, and interest. The organization will have roles and subgroups with specific tasks. This organization will be useful in defining future areas of action that the first chapter and the foundational structure will have .

Each subgroup will consist of a coordinator (nominated by self or by others) and a group of volunteers. The preliminary organization as a whole will have a general coordinator and a secretary.


  1. Join the working groups desired. It is important to add the availability or tasks that you want to do.
  2. Nominate self or others for sub-group coordinator positions as well as the general coordinator.
  3. Vote on the nominations on March 1, 2011
  4. Approve this proposal before March 7, 2011
