Cumulus would like to join the meeting.

Agenda Item from Board Member Russel Skunk: Can we make WCA cute stickers? What is the logo?

Second request from Russell: @Claudia.Garad - I believe that Nepomuk is in charge of cutie fashion and wearable branding. He gives hats to Russell and organizes sombrero wearing meetings for for the cuties of feline backgrounds at Wikimania Mexico City. Any future plans?

{{Poster request
 | Your contact details = [[User:Percy Plush|]], [[User:Erminig|]]
 | Project name = Wikimedia Cuteness Association
 | Short description = Cuteness: a state of mind for shaping the future of the Wikimedia movement
 | Longer description = The Wikimedia movement needs more Cuteness. Badly. Recognising this fact, many Wikimedians have been active in the past few years to advocate for Cuteness. As plushies, we have been at the forefront of this endeavour − traveling to international events like Wikimania in order to shower attendees with Cuteness, raising awareness on the importance of our mission amongst community leaders. The positive reception we were welcomed with, as much as the scale of the issue to tackle, led us to join forces under the Cute banner of the Wikimedia Cuteness Association − a prospective thematic organisation dedicated to foster Cuteness in the Wikimedia movement. We gained much momentum, recruiting many more supporters to our cause. And yet, every other day, every other e-mail and every little drama is a reminder that we still have a long, long way to go.
 | Milestone 1 = A vibrant, close-knit community of plushies
 | Milestone 2 = A global, ever-growing group of countless friends, supporters, and followers.
 | Milestone 3 = The ultimate key to the bright and glorious future the Wikimedia movement deserves
