Wikimedia New York City had an initial organization meeting to select officers on September 8, 2008 at the Odessa restaurant.

It turned out at the meeting that we were not actually incorporated yet, but we still got good work done then.

The following note was sent out by Pharos two days before the meetup.

Wikimedia New York City Board[edit]

Positions were nominated and voted on by those present at the meeting (all were approved unanimously), keeping in mind the earlier June process.

Daniel Case, DGG and Mbisanz, though not physically present, accepted their nominations by phone call while the meeting was in progress. David Shankbone kept minutes for this meeting.
