Item 1: Update from previous meeting – Nothing to report.

Item 2: Mediawiki discussion – Toni has carried out extensive work on the WCM wiki back-end, including updating the software, removing spam, and reconfiguring the ways in which PDF files on the wiki are presented through PDF handler. He also created an inter-wiki, allowing us to link to other wikis without creating an external link, and also integrated the wiki with Google Analytics.

Item 3:Plan of action for 2016 – Wiki Loves Monuments recap & follow-up – Neville updated the team with the outcomes of the Wiki Loves Monuments contest. The jury process is underway and the winners of the contest will be submitted to the international WLM team before 25 October. It was agreed that the contribution of one particularly active participant will be acknowledged through some form of prize. A press release declaring the winners and the launch of the exhibition at Spazju Kreattiv is being planned. Neville will be drafting a press release on this wiki and sharing it with the rest of the team for their contribution. Neville will be exploring the possibility of applying for Rapid Grants to fund the opening of the exhibition.

Item 4: Membership scheme – A membership scheme is being planned for 2017. Neville will be contacting Pierre from Spazju Kreattiv to discuss this in more detail and seek his advice.

Item 5: Accounting and administration – bank account – It was agreed that WCM would open a bank account with APS bank. Neville will be visiting a local APS branch to get this process started and report back to the team accordingly.

Item 6: Other matters – Nothing to report.
