Resolutions Resolution: Recognition of Wiki Project Med as a Wikimedia Thematic Organization Errors?
This resolution was approved on June 14, 2019.


Whereas, the Affiliations Committee has assessed the application for recognition as a Wikimedia Thematic Organization submitted by the Wiki Project Med user group, and has advised the Board of Trustees that the applicant group meets the criteria for recognition as a Wikimedia Thematic Organization, and that recognition of the applicant group as a Wikimedia Thematic Organization 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 Wiki Project Med user group as a Wikimedia Thematic Organization dedicated to supporting and promoting the Wikimedia movement;

Now, therefore, it is:

Resolved, that the Board recognizes the Wiki Project Med user group as a Wikimedia Thematic Organization under a name to be determined by the user group and Wikimedia Foundation staff, provided that the Wiki Project Med user group accepts and complies with a Wikimedia Thematic Organization Agreement. The Board instructs the Executive Director to offer a Wikimedia Thematic Organization Agreement to the Wiki Project Med user group. This agreement will govern the organization’s recognition and provide the organization with specific permission to use the Wikimedia trademarks.
