[Wikimedia-l] Annette Campbell-White joins the Wikimedia Endowment Advisory Board

Lisa Gruwell
I wanted to share with you an announcement
<http://blog.wikimedia.org/2016/05/11/annette-campbell-white-endowment/> I
just posted to the Wikimedia blog. The WMF Board of Trustees has appointed
Annette Campbell-White as one of the founding members of the Wikimedia
Endowment Advisory Board.

Annette has been a supporter of WMF since 2010.  She frequently attends our
events and a few staff members have gotten to know her.  We could not be
more thrilled to have her stepping up her involvement and sharing her
expertise for the benefit of the movement.

As background on the the process: In December, the WMF board passed a
resolution <https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Establishment_of_Endowment>
creating the endowment.  As part of that, they are appointing the first
three founding members of the Endowment Advisory Board.   Jimmy Wales was
appointed in December and the board appointed Annette Campbell-White at
their meeting last month in Berlin.

If you have thoughts on the endowment, this is still a good place on meta
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Endowment_Essay> to have a discussion.

Please join me in welcoming and congratulating Annette!
