Updates from AffCom



Type of session:



The Affiliations Committee is a Wikimedia community-run committee entrusted with advising the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees on the approval of new movement affiliates: national and subnational chapters, thematic organizations, and user groups.

In recent years, the committee has been improving its work processes and is also trying to introduce new approaches to the work of the affiliation, which is in line with the 2030 strategy.

In light of the new approaches, the Committee wants to share the latest updates with the community, share an update on the affiliate strategy, and answer questions from the community in support of more and stronger affiliates.
