Besides this year were invited Patricio Lorente and Maria Sefiradi as Board members representatives, Asaf Bartov and Jessie Wild from the staff of the Wikimedia Foundation and Kira Kraemer from the Chapters Dialogue project. Also, in this time, it was possible for remote members to watch the sessions by streaming.

  • To share and develop better practices on planning and growth of every chapter and group.
  • To include metrics as part of the evaluation of their programs.
  • To create "Iberotec", as technical instance of Iberocoop to assist this group in their own languages.
  • To have a coordinator who drives the projects and keeps motivation. Carmen Alcazar from WMMX was elected as such.
  • An Admission rule to Iberocoop.
