Chapters Committee/Resolutions/Approval of Wikimedia India - June 2010

Chapters Committee Advice



Wikimedia India requested to be approved as a chapter. The Memorandum of Association and the Rules and Regulations have been reviewed by the Chapters Committee. The group of participants in the candidate chapter seems viable.

The chapters committee hereby advises the Board of Trustees to approve Wikimedia India upon founding and grant them interim permission to use the Wikimedia trademarks pending the signing of a Chapters Agreement.

Proposed Board Resolution


Per the recommendation of the Chapters Committee, which confirms that the structure and bylaws of Wikimedia India comply with the current requirements and guidelines for future chapters, it is hereby resolved that:

The Board of Trustees officially recognize Wikimedia India as a Wikimedia Chapter.

The Board of Trustees grant Wikimedia India interim permission to use the Wikimedia trademarks pending signature of the Chapters Agreement.

This recognition starts on the day Wikimedia India becomes an organisation recognized by the relevant official Indian authorities.
