Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

After Wikimedia Deutschland published a website version of its 2016 annual report, people via the Wikimedia announcement mailing list expressed an interest in learning more about

  • a.) the growth of member numbers and
  • b.) details of WMDE membership

This informal BoF session is an invitation to come together in person, talk about these topics and hopefully share insights about membership from different organizations.

What will attendees take away from this session?
  • Information on how Wikimedia Deutschland works with its member base.
  • different models of membership organizations (needs input from attendees, i. e. other Chapters would be helpful)
