The Wikimedia Summit, or the Wikimedia Conference (WMCON) how it was previously named, is an annual meeting of representatives of Affiliates like Wikimedia Chapters, Thematic organizations, and User groups, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees and other movement groups like the Affiliations Committee and the Funds Dissemination Committee. With the 2019 edition the organisers renamed the conference to Wikimedia Summit.
Attending the Wikimedia Conference is interesting to learn more about best practices and how to improve the quality of ones chapter.
The primary goal is the management of the (inter)national organisation.
It can be followed by training sessions.
Participation is limited to board members (or comparable) and only after approval.
