Coordination and documentation of the Best practices documentation team's activities.

Best practice in public outreach is a collection of articles describing experiences in winning new volunteers, partners, content and audiences. Given that several chapters already developed successful projects to engage new target groups or deepen relationships to new Wikimedians, the Best practices documentation page is a forum for those who want to share their knowledge and for those who want to spread the word.
