Foundation-Chapter-Community relationships ?

Would it make sense to extend the question and ask about the Foundation - Chapter - Community relationships? - Chapters could play an important role in linking an increasingly professionalized and bureaucratized foundation to the wider community. However, most community members are not actually members of national chapter organizations, and it is unclear to what extent community members at large perceive chapters as a link between themselves and the Wikimedia projects. I guess this triple relationship would deserve some extra thought.

This eventually would boil down to analyzing the relationship between the growing bureaucratic organization and the (still growing ?) open community. It might be helpful to reach a common understanding of this relationship and to take appropriate action in order to shape it in a mindful manner. --Krol:k 19:49, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
