Abstract (please use no less than 300 words to describe your proposal)
A short presentation on the history and growth of Wikimedia Deutschland from 7 members in 2004 to an organization of over 700 members, 20 employees, and an annual budget of roughly €1,8M. This presentation will provide insights into the challenges and opportunities Wikimedia Deutschland faced as the first Wikimedia chapter, what activities it has engaged in over the years, and what it has done to constantly reinvent itself throughout its history. An outlook into the planned future of the chapter will be presented as part of a discussion of the chapter's strategic planning process. The presentation will be completed by an opportunity to ask questions. The insights of this presentation will be particularly useful for fellow Wikimedia chapters, but also for other volunteer-driven non-chapter organizations.
