Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Affiliates] Movement Strategy: Endorse the strategic direction today! #wikimedia2030

Tim Moritz Hector-2
Dear all,

I am sharing with you what I just also added to the endorsement Meta page:

During our Board meeting on Saturday, we agreed that both the Board and the
Executive Director of Wikimedia Deutschland wholeheartedly and unanimously
support the new Strategic Direction. In light of its fundamental nature, we
will submit the new Strategic Direction to our general assembly for
deliberation and final approval on November 18, 2017.

We all look forward to shaping the future of our movement together in the
coming weeks, months and years.

Best regards,
Tim Moritz Hector

Tim Moritz Hector
Chair of the Board
