On the two days of the Wikimania preconference, the WCA offers a Wikimedia Organisations Seminar (WCA WOS). We welcome everyone, whether he or she is already active in a Wikimedia organisation, or wants to become active.
The WCA is the Wikimedia Chapters Association. In spite of its name, the Association is open for all Wikimedia organisations: chapters, thematic organisations and user groups.
What we learn here:
- who is active in organisations
- how organisations manage themselves
- what the WCA is and could be in future
- how we can help each other
Among the panelists are Jon Davies, director of Wikimedia UK, Anasuya Sengupta of the Wikimedia Foundation and James Heilman from the Wiki Med Project. The topics: the role of money, the structure of the movement, and: who is the boss in a Wikimedia chapter?
