The Meeting is for chapter representatives from chapters from all over the world, and will also be attended by some staff, WMF board, chapter committee members and anyone else who wants to join in. This is not an exclusive event! (Note: the WMF Board has a board meeting all day this day, and most will not be able to attend. But many will be at the public movement roles workshop the day before.)
