The 2012 WALRUS Congress, being held on Wednesday July 11, is an inaugural event that aims to bring together Wikimedians Active in Local Regions of the United States (WALRUS) as representatives of chapters and regional groups, national and regional GLAM and outreach coordinators, and other interested Wikipedians and Wikimedians from across the breadth of the United States. We invite all Wikimania attendees—whether from the United States or around the world—to join us for an evening of discussion, collaboration, and excitement!
We will hold the WALRUS Congress as an extended lunch meeting on Wednesday July 11 from 11am-1pm in room 307 at Wikimania's George Washington University venue, right before the Wikipedia Loves Libraries meeting.
If you're a Wikimedian from the United States planning on attending this event, please add your name to the list below. Please feel free to list the city, state, or region you'll be representing—we aim to have attendees from across the entire United States.
Although this event is focused on Wikimedia activities in the United States, we welcome guests from around the world. If you'll be joining us from outside the United States, please add your name to the list below.
The following is a preliminary agenda for the event. Please keep in mind that this is subject to change, and the final choice of topics of discussion will depend heavily on the interests of the attendees.
