WMAT general assemblyEdit

Basics
  • in a nutshell: This year's assembly focussed on our new mid-term strategy until 2025. The strategy was designed in a collaborative and iterative process between board, staff and volunteers over the past few months. The general assembly approved of the new strategic direction, the next step will be the implementation and formulation of concrete goals and metrics. Unfortunately, this process is blocked by a lack of information regarding the requirements of the new WMF grantmaking procedures.
