Wikimedia DC held its monthly WikiSalons on April 8, May 13, and June 10. The monthly dinner meetups were held on April 25 and May 30.


During the April 25 meeting of the Board of Directors, the Board lowered the annual membership dues to $5 per year and established a paid staff position of Organizational Development Coordinator to assist in Wikimedia DC's cultural partnerships program.

The Board additionally held a two-day strategy planning session on June 20–21. During those two days, the Board reviewed its strategic priorities, devised long term goals for the organization, and developed program ideas in furtherance of those goals. This work will inform Wikimedia DC's strategic plan. The board additionally appointed Trisha Melikian as the treasurer and made additional committee appointments.
