Resolutions Resolution: Creating Recognition of Wikimedistas de Colombia User Group as a Wikimedia Chapter Errors?
This resolution was approved on June 14, 2019.


Whereas, the Affiliations Committee has assessed the application for recognition as a Wikimedia Chapter submitted by the Wikimedistas de Colombia User Group, and has advised the Board of Trustees that the applicant group meets the criteria for recognition as a Wikimedia Chapter, and that recognition of the applicant group as a Wikimedia Chapter under the name Wikimedia Colombia would further the charitable aims of the Wikimedia Foundation and be in the best interests of the Wikimedia movement;

Whereas, the Board has independently assessed that recommendation and agrees with it; and

Whereas, the Board wishes to recognize and welcome the Wikimedistas de Colombia User Group as a Wikimedia Chapter dedicated to supporting and promoting the Wikimedia movement;

Now, therefore, it is:

Resolved, that the Board recognizes the Wikimedistas de Colombia User Group as a Wikimedia Chapter under the name Wikimedia Colombia, provided that the Wikimedistas de Colombia User Group accepts and complies with a Wikimedia Chapter Agreement. The Board instructs the Executive Director to offer a Wikimedia Chapter Agreement to the Wikimedistas de Colombia User Group. This agreement will govern the chapter's recognition and provide the chapter with specific permission to use the Wikimedia trademarks.
