Dear Wikimedians of Bulgaria User Group,

In preparation for a movement strategy conversation in Berlin, we would
like to extend one more invitation for a second representative to attend
the Wikimedia Conference this March. This is in addition to the one
representative that is already invited to attend the conference on behalf
of your affiliate. This year’s conference has been built with 3 tracks;
extending one additional invite will allow your group to designate one
person for strategy and one for the customary learning tracks.

   - 1 person - Strategy track
   - 1 person - Capacity Building & Partnerships learning tracks

During the Strategy track, we will be discussing the future of the movement
and the best ways to fulfil our vision: that every single human being can
freely share in the sum of all knowledge. Importantly, the person you
designate for the Strategy track should have demonstrated leadership and/or
domain expertise important to your group’s efforts.

You should prioritize someone who...

   - will represent your community and share back home what they learn
   - has implemented one or more different types of programmatic or
   engagement leadership in the last 12 months in your community
   - has engaged in learning and/or evaluation practices in order to learn
   and share about your group’s strategic activities and program work
   - is working to develop and/or lead strategic efforts in your community
   (e.g., communications, volunteer engagement, skills development for
   community engagement, community health, program design and evaluation).

If you have already registered a representative to join the main conference
in Berlin and that person is your preferred representative for the Strategy
track, no problem. You may choose a second person to attend one of the
other conference tracks while your original representative attends

To designate your representatives to the Strategy and a non-strategy track,
reply to this message and share the names of

   1. the person you wish to represent your group in the Strategy track
   2. the person you wish to participate in Capacity Building &
   Partnerships learning tracks

Please respond to this message to let us know about your additional
representative’s name and email address as well as the track designation
for your representatives as soon as you are able. There will be a new
registration period for the additional person to register, which will be
open January 9 through January 30, 2017. We will keep track of your
decision and share the invitation to register to the additional affiliate

Please take the time to consult with each other to determine who is best to
represent your group. Once we hear back, we will proceed with messaging to
share a registration link for your additional representative so that they
may register before the deadline.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
