Chapters Committee/Resolutions/Approval of Wikimedia Philippines - February 2010

Chapters Committee Advice


Wikimedia Philippines requested to be approved as a chapter. The Articles of Incorporation [1] and Bylaws [2] have been publicly reviewed by the Chapters Committee [3][4]. The group of participants in the candidate chapter seems viable.

The chapters committee hereby advises the Board of Trustees to approve Wikimedia Philippines 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 Philippines comply with the current requirements and guidelines for future chapters, it is hereby resolved that:

The Board of Trustees officially recognizes Wikimedia Philippines as a Wikimedia Chapter.

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

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