== Participate in events ==
 
The Wiki Society of Washington, DC hosts many public events:
 
 
 
* [[Meetups|'''Local meetups''']] are informal events where individuals interested in Wikipedia, Wikimedia, free culture, and the advancement of general knowledge can meet in a casual, relaxed atmosphere.  Meetups are usually held on weekend evenings, and are the perfect opportunity for anyone interested in our work to stop by and chat.
 
* [[Meetings|'''Formal meetings''']] of the [[Board of Directors]] and the general membership take place several times throughout the year.  Most meetings are open to the general public; anyone interested in the internal workings of the Society is welcome to attend.
 
* Our work with local individuals and institutions is conducted through various [[Outreach|'''outreach events''']], ranging from museum tours to Wikipedia training sessions.  Whatever your interests, there is certain to be an event that will pique them.
 
* The Society occasionally hosts [[Conferences|'''major conferences''']] in the DC area.  While these events are rare, they are also the biggest and most exciting gatherings of free culture and knowledge advocates in the region.
