Whereas, the Board of Trustees wishes to recognize and welcome Wikimedia Belgium as a Wikimedia chapter dedicated to supporting and promoting the Wikimedia movement;

Now, therefore, be it resolved that the Board recognizes Wikimedia Belgium as a Wikimedia chapter, provided that Wikimedia Belgium accepts and complies with a Wikimedia Chapter Agreement. The Board instructs the Executive Director to offer a Wikimedia Chapter Agreement to Wikimedia Belgium. This agreement will govern the chapter's recognition and provide the chapter with specific permission to use the Wikimedia trademarks.

Pending execution of a Wikimedia Chapter Agreement, Wikimedia Belgium is entitled to request a trademark permission for its activity, pursuant to the Wikimedia Trademark Policy.
