Dear CEE community members,

As you probably know the Wikimedia CEE Meeting of 2016 is going to take
place in Dilijan, Armenia on 26-29 August and will be hosted by Wikimedia
Armenia. I'm happy to announce that we have almost completed the grant
proposa <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:PEG/WM_AM/CEE_Meeting_2016>l
and formed the organization team
This year we expect to offer 58 scholarships and have about 90 attendees in
total. You can find more information about the meeting in the grant proposal
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:PEG/WM_AM/CEE_Meeting_2016> or on
the meta page <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_CEE_Meeting_2016>.
The grant proposal is still a draft for the community members to propose
changes and make corrections. We'll submit the grant proposal in a week.
Please have a look at it. We highly appreciate your input :-)

There are also other updates that I'd like to share with you:

* We had a visit to Dilijan on 3rd May to confirm our agreements with the
venue (UWC Dilijan) and the hotel (Dilijan Resort) and to arrange meeting
rooms and catering.

* WM AM reached out its volunteers in order to form local CEE organization
team and discuss organizational issues. A meeting was held on 30th April.
The full list of 27 volunteers and their roles can be found on the grant

* All CEE communities were invited to fill in the Questions and Needs
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_CEE_Meeting_2016/Needs> page on
meta. Thanks Nikola and Antanana for reaching out the communities! If you
have not done it yet please take a moment and write your community needs. I
promise it won't take long :-)

As the CEE meeting preparations are actively going on one of our
communication team members will inform you  about news and updates on the
meeting once in 2 weeks or more often, if necessary.

P.S. I'm sorry for sending it twice. I hope now it doesn't look like a
quoted text. Just skip the first one.


David Saroyan,

Program Manager
