Wikimedia chapters are national or sub-national not-for-profit organisations created to promote the interests of Wikmedia projects, such as Wikipedia, locally. Chapters are legally independent of the Wikimedia Foundation, entering into a "Chapters Agreement" with the Foundation following acceptance by the Affiliations Committee (formerly known as "Chapters Committee"), and have no control over Foundation websites. The organisations organise regional conferences, outreach and global events such as Wikimania.[1][2] As of January 2014 there were 40 recognised Wikimedia chapters.[3][4]
