Chapters meeting 2009/Preparation/Wikimedia New York City
- Our first preparatory meeting was in November 2007, and we were accepted as a chapter in January 2009. We are currently in the process of legally registering with the state.
- The biggest development is the relationships we have established with outside partners (Free Culture groups, civic groups, museums, libraries).
- We don't have a formal membership system yet, but there are about 20 people actively involved.
- Digitization of Yiddish encyclopedia difficulties
- Culture clashes in institutional relationships
- Photo event logistics
