In order to fully function as a chapter, and actually do things, we need members. So, how do we get them?

Ideas:

  1. Take membership application forms along to wikimeets
  2. Send a message to anyone that's UK-based on their en.wp user talk pages
    1. Compile a list and use AWB?
  3. Send to relevant WikiProjects Yes check.svgY Template message {{WMUK WikiProject}} placed at: (also {{WMUK WikiProject Welsh}} where marked (cy)
